COVID-19 has shed light on the ongoing issue of domestic violence in Canada. The Canadian government also lists violence against women and children as one of the most significant societal issues endangering Canadians’ health and well-being and said COVID-19 has made these problems even more severe. A recent Statistics Canada analysis of data collected from 17 police forces across the country shows that calls related to domestic disturbances rose by almost 12 per cent between March and June of 2020 compared to the same four months in 2019. Previously, solutions to domestic violence were limited to emergency lines, shelters, safe houses, restriction orders, police escorts, aggressor imprisonment (non-technology solutions) and/or panic buttons, reverse tagging and aggressor monitoring (technology-driven solutions).

Seeing this gap, Attenti developed a bi-lateral system which continues to robustly monitor the offender with the goal of empowering victims by allowing them to heal by returning to daily routines without fear of violence or the potential to encounter their abuser. This webinar will explore options for both Canadian law enforcement and survivors facing this challenge. It takes place May 5, 2021 at 10 a.m. EST.
