About this event

On April 1, 2021, Alberta’s The Disclosure to Protect Against Violence Act (Clare’s Law) came into effect. Clare’s Law provides a framework for disclosure of a person's history of violence to their intimate partners as well as opportunity to connect with social support services across Alberta.

Why take this training?

To build your capacity to talk with your clients and community about Clare’s Law. You will learn how to support individuals through understanding and navigating the application and disclosure processes. This will also be an opportunity to learn how to receive and complete Clare’s Law referrals that may come to your organization.

This may include social service providers, social workers, psychologists, informal supporters, networks, and more. The training is specifically designed for agencies that are a part of the Clare’s Law Referral Network but being part of the network is not mandatory for attendance.
