We would like to extend our thanks to the Stop The Domestic Violence Conference SK’s generous sponsors for helping us make this important event happen. Please support them, just like they have the courage to support this vital discussion about how to help the Saskatchewan victims of interpersonal violence. Introducing our break sponsor Saskatchewan Chamber Of Commerce
Saskatchewan Chamber Of Commerce
The Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce represents the Saskatchewan business community, advocating on behalf of all sizes of businesses, local chambers of commerce, and professional associations. As the Voice of Saskatchewan business, it is the Chamber that advocates on behalf of Chamber members to elected politicians and senior government officials.
By representing a broad spectrum of community life in Saskatchewan, the Saskatchewan Chamber is uniquely equipped to develop policies that accurately reflect the needs of the business community.
The Saskatchewan Chamber Of Commerce recognizes that interpersonal violence is a serious issue in Saskatchewan and one that all citizens in the province have a shared responsibility to address. While just one incident of interpersonal violence in the workplace is too many, the fact that Saskatchewan has the highest rates of police-reported domestic violence for both males and females in Canada is totally unacceptable and action needs to be taken. As such, in 2019 they launched the ‘Make It Our Business Training.’
Make It Our Business.
The Make It Our Business program provides information to engage employers and other workplace stakeholders to prevent workplace domestic violence, to support employees at risk of or currently experiencing domestic violence, and to improve workplace health and safety. The program outlines how employers, supervisors, managers, human resources professionals, security personnel, union representatives, and co-workers can recognize abusive relationships, respond to domestic violence, and refer victims and abusers to supports that offer help.
Representatives from Provincial Association of Transition Houses and Services of Saskatchewan ( PATHS ) facilitate regular 1/2 day sessions of information and learning through the SCC’s newly offered programming, Make It Our Business Training
