Bill C-233 – Violence against Intimate Partners
Bill C-233 is federal legislation which may soon become law. The Act contains several changes to the Canadian Criminal Code bail laws which is aimed at the protection of victims of domestic violence and intimate partner violence.
The bill would require judges, before making a release order, to consider whether a person who is accused of violence against their intimate partner should wear an electronic monitoring device. The Bill also amends the Judges Act to promote training of judges in relevant DV/IPV issues to help improve judicial awareness of domestic violence and intimate partner violence issues and the need for special measures to protect domestic violence and intimate partner violence victims.
