This petition is in support of Bill C-233 (An Act to amend the Criminal Code and the Judges Act (violence against an intimate partner), which was introduced in the House of Commons as a private member’s bill and underwent its first reading on February 7, 2022.
(Note that there are two steps to the petition—after signing, you need to click the link in an email that is sent to you to confirm your identity.)
There are two very important pieces to this Bill: training for judges on IPV and coercive control and a requirement for judges to consider adding electronic monitoring as a condition of release orders for people who have been charged with offences against their intimate partners.
