Who We Are

The Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre (SKCAC) is collaborative in approach and innovative in spirit. We are a not-for-profit organization – in alliance with the Calgary Police Service, Calgary Region Children’s Services, Alberta Health Services, Alberta Justice Calgary Crown Prosecutors’ Office, the RCMP, Alberta Education, The University of Calgary and Treaty 7 – that aims to set new standards for providing a strategic, effective and proven approach to child abuse.

Charting A Bold Path

With a shared purpose, the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre (SKCAC) is moving forward confidently and strategically to the day when…

  • The issue of child abuse is front and centre
  • The entire community owns the responsibility to value and support the well-being of children, youth and families
  • All perpetrators are brought to justice
  • Children and families have access to all the support they need, in the place where they live
  • No child or youth is abused

A Centre of Excellence

The power of the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre is unleashed through integrated services, the right support at the right time – that reduce the long-term impact of trauma and enable children, youth and families to recover to lead healthy, productive lives.
