Policy Shifts

Policy Shifts, a revamp of our previous Canada at a Glance bulletin, focuses on recent VAW-related bills and legislation and VAW-related policy changes and consultations for every province and territory and at the federal level. This includes domestic violence leave, tenant rights, custody considerations in family law, Clare’s Law, and more.

This compilation is intended to help keep our network up to date on important changes by providing a condensed summary with reference links. This issue covers December 2019 to December 2020, and future editions will come out every 6 months.
