The Disclosure to Protect Against Domestic Violence (Clare’s Law) Act gives people who feel at risk of domestic violence a way to get information about their partners so they can make informed choices about their safety. Alberta’s version of Clare’s Law is named after a young woman was murdered by an ex-boyfriend with a history of violence against women.
An intimate partner relationship is a relationship between two people, regardless of gender, which can be reasonably characterized as being physically or emotionally intimate, or both. This would include current and former dating relationships, current and former common-law relationships and current and former marriage relationships.
