Keira’s Law

Support Keira’s Law

On April 29, 2022, the House of Commons congregated for a second reading of Member of Parliament Anju Dhillon’s Private Member’s Bill C-233 which includes Keira’s Law.

Keira’s Law will raise the level of education on domestic violence and coercive control for federally appointed judges. It will ensure that judges are properly equipped in identifying the complexities of domestic violence so that dangerous behaviour patterns may be prevented from escalating, as in the case of Keira.

In the lead up to and on April 29, Women’s Shelters Canada called on our community of shelters and transition houses across the country – and the general public – to demonstrate their support for the bill by spreading awareness! A huge thank you to everyone who emailed their MPs, signed the parliamentary petition, and/or participated in our Keira’s Law Twitter storm to push for this important legislation! Violence against women is a non-partisan issue and so we were delighted to see unanimous support in the House of Commons to move Bill C-233 forward.
