On December 9th 2022, the Honourable Marci Ien, Minister for Women and Gender Equality and Youth, met with Shelter Movers Executive Director Marc Hull-Jacquin in Edmonton to announce funding for Shelter Movers’ Prairies Scale Up project. The new project will establish chapters across the Prairies, beginning in Alberta.

“One of the most dangerous times in the life of someone experiencing violence is when they are getting ready to leave. Through this investment in Shelter Movers, we are committed to making part of that decision easier. After meeting with members of Shelter Movers today, I’m inspired by how these incredible people, who are mostly volunteers, work day in and day out to ensure that survivors of gender-based violence can move safely and quickly from unsafe environments. I’d like to ask Canadians to consider volunteering for organizations like Shelter Movers—to strengthen your own communities and improve the quality of life of all Canadians."

Through this project, victims and survivors of gender-based violence in Alberta will have access to free survivor-centered assistance to safely move them, their children, pets and belongings out of violent households. Shelter Movers staff, volunteer movers and drivers are specially trained and vetted to work with people who have experienced violence. Shelter Movers will now be able to hire and train additional movers and drivers to meet the notable increase in demand for frontline service.

This funding enables promising practices that aim to strengthen the sector and improve support for people impacted by gender-based violence.

"This funding is transformational. With this investment, we will be able to rapidly deploy our unique, community-based, survivor-centred moving service to support thousands of families in crisis across the Prairies. For survivors fleeing abuse in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, this will be life changing.''
