We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:
1. Make Canada safer for all by using evidence-based interventions to significantly reduce violent crime;
2. Engage with vulnerable groups to develop violence prevention strategies;
3. Establish a permanent office for violence prevention, reporting to the Prime Minister, to spearhead action across all relevant ministries, in partnership with the provinces, territories, municipalities, and Indigenous Peoples, and to ensure significant measurable reductions in victimizations; and
4. Redirect the equivalent of 10% of current federal expenditures on policing, courts, and incarceration towards adequate and sustained funding for effective local prevention programs.
