Keeping Albertans Safe from Domestic Violence

Government of Alberta

Clare’s Law continues to be a valuable resource for Albertans at risk of domestic violence, with more than 400 applications for disclosure since the law came into effect.

Through Clare’s Law, Albertans have the right to know and ask about an intimate partner’s past and whether they have a history of violence. People who feel they may be at risk can submit an online application through the Clare’s Law website at no cost.

The government has improved the Clare’s Law process to make it more efficient, easier to navigate and more responsive. This includes adjusting the risk analysis process to decrease turnaround times so applicants are provided information as quickly as possible while also making sure applicants receive comprehensive information in a more accessible format.

As a result, the backlog of risk assessments caused by the large number of applications received has been addressed.
