Healthy Relationships

Why do we invest in healthy relationships?

Healthy relationships with family, friends, and other natural supports are an important part of individual and community wellness. By helping to reimagine programs and initiatives that ensure the households our families live in are safe and supportive environments, we are building the bedrock for safe relationships.

The Stats

4,723 victims of violent crime reported to police in Calgary in 2022.

4 in 10 Calgarians are or have been in relationships that are abusive or show signs of abuse.

Seniors are most at risk of elder abuse from friends or acquaintances by family members, and strangers.

1 in 5 women who access a violence against women shelter return to live with their abuser as they are unable to transition to safe, affordable, or adequate housing.
