Safety for Women and Girls

There is much to love about this city but lately, it has begun to feel very unsafe due to the increasing number of violent acts against women. This is unacceptable.

The Problem

When cities are not safe, they impede women’s ability to work, socialize and contribute to society. Their mobility is greatly reduced, impacting their ability to fully participate in public life without fear of violence and harassment.

 

The Policy

Make Edmonton a safer city for women and girls.

  • Lights are installed on high use and community identified pathways, parks, and parking facilities.
  • Continued and increased safety improvements of LRT stations and transit centres.
  • Expand the hours of the on-demand transit services.
  • Dedicated downtown peace officers & social worker units.
  • Municipal street harassment bylaws addressing hateful and harassing verbal assaults.
  • Micro grants for community partners and associations to deliver safety programs.

 

The Outcome

An Edmonton that is safe for women and girls is safe for all Edmontonians - no matter gender identity, culture, race, or what part of the city you live in.
