This report is part of a series of research policy briefs aimed at informing the Alberta Primary Prevention Framework Policy Collaborative on strategies and actions to prevent domestic and sexual violence. This research was conducted by the Collaborative Applied Research for Equity in Health Policy and Systems (CARE) Research Lab and identifies gaps and weaknesses in existing social policies focused on economic and financial supports including income, employment, and childcare. The review provides a roadmap for the Government of Alberta and the anti-violence sector to identify policies, strategies, and actions for primary prevention efforts. The report highlights the importance of socio-economic factors in domestic violence and examines how social policies can address the root causes and drivers of domestic and family violence.
