Child abuse is a horrific crime that many people do not want to think or talk about; that needs to change. Silence is the enemy of justice, and we need to shine a light on an issue that exists in darkness.

We respect Sheldon Kennedy’s decision to hand the Child Advocacy Centre back to the community and we are so grateful to have had his support and the opportunity to work so closely with him for the past five years. We are proud of Sheldon and the tireless work he has accomplished. He has been a phenomenal advocate for the Centre and victims of child abuse. His dedication has helped bring this issue to the forefront and has changed the lives of countless youth and children. 
The Centre is focused on continuing our momentum and growth to provide care and services to more children, youth and families who are experiencing abuse. The Centre’s services will remain uninterrupted and this change does not affect day-to-day operations. We will continue to operate as the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre and will announce the Centre’s new name in the near future.

Being Trauma Aware: Making a difference in the lives of children and youth” is now available for free online.

This trauma-informed training program provides foundational knowledge essential to those working directly with children and youth, including social workers, teachers, police officers, doctors, sport coaches, etc.

“Being Trauma Aware” is a two-and-a-half-hour online program to teach practitioners how to provide improved support for those impacted by violence and abuse, ultimately creating a common language for all.

The development of this new program was funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and developed in collaboration with the Alberta Ministries of Health, Children’s Services, Education and Justice & Solicitor General, the University of Calgary, the Zebra Child Protection Centre, the Palix foundation, the Canadian Mental Health association, and the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse and Addiction.
