This report informs Alberta’s next and exciting chapter of expanding work with men and boys to end violence and advance gender equality. It provides clear and actionable strategies for Alberta’s anti-violence sector as well as the Government of Alberta to advance prevention efforts. Information is organized into three evidence-informed sections. The first section makes the case for why we need to engage men and boys in violence prevention efforts. Foundational theories and approaches are presented to help readers orient themselves in this work. The second section provides a provincial plan on how the Government of Alberta can support and advance this work including the specific policy and legislative reforms needed to create the social conditions for success. The final section is geared towards leaders and practitioners on promising practices they can integrate into their work.
