Brief Description

In 2018, the Manitoba government established the Gender-Based Violence Committee of Cabinet to study and advise on matters relating to the integration of government services for the purpose of ending gender-based violence (GBV), and collaboration across government departments to better meet the needs of Manitobans in critical situations relating to domestic or family violence and sexual violence. Its creation is historic for Manitoba, as this is the first time a cabinet committee will focus solely on GBV. It will address the need for an approach to GBV that is comprehensive, inclusive, and based on solid evidence and a whole-of-government approach to coordinate policies, legislation, and initiatives.
