The Regina Community Partnership Against Violence (CPAV) is a partnership between community members and organizations including Provincial Association of Transition Houses and Services of Saskatchewan (PATHS), the Lifelong Learning Centre—University of Regina, Regina Transition House, YWCA Regina, North Central Community Association, and Family Service Regina. CPAV comes together each year to host the Peacemakers Breakfast to honour peacemakers in the community and deliver a message about ensuring Regina is a peaceful, non-violent and inclusive community to a wide audience.
Every year, we have over 200 people from government, university, service clubs, non-profit, law enforcement, business, and different areas of the community come together for this event. October 2019 marked the 18th Annual Peacemakers Breakfast.
Past speakers to attend the Peacemaker’s Breakfast have included; former Chief of Police Cal Johnston, former Lieutenant Governors the Honorable Lynda Haverstock, and the Honorable Jack Weibe, Carrie Bourassa (First Nations University of Canada), Hal Zorn (Regina Police Service), Dr. Marc Spooner (University of Regina), former Saskatchewan Towards Offering Partnership Solutions (STOPS) to Violence Coordinator Ken Crawford, University of Regina President Vianne Timmons, Getachew Woldeyesus and Oudalay Senevonghachack (Regina Open Door Society), Dr. Shauneen Pete (University of Regina), Cadmus Delorme (formerly of the First Nations University of Canada, now Chief of Cowessess First Nation), Barb Byers (Canadian Labour Congress), Attiya Khan (Co-Writer and Co-Director of A Better Man), and Randy Lundy (Indigenous Cultural Liason, YWCA Regina).
