From the Ontario Minister Responsible for Women’s Issues

METRAC Safety Information System Launch

December 10, 2015.

A Message from the Minister

I would like to congratulate METRAC on the launch of its Safety Information System.

This innovative initiative will give citizens much needed information that will help them feel safe. By providing subscribers with messages and alerts about sexual violence, sexual assault and harassment, METRAC is playing a vital role in helping to end violence against women.

Strong women mean a strong Ontario. As Minister Responsible for Women’s Issues, I am dedicated to ensuring that every woman and girl in our province has the opportunity and the ability to thrive, reach her full potential, and lead a happy and fulfilling life free from violence and discrimination. By working together, we can continue to make strides so that every woman and girl in our society is safe, respected, and considered equal.

I applaud METRAC and its efforts to end violence against women and children. Please accept my best wishes for a successful launch.
