About The Prosecution of Animal Abuse Conference
This conference has been held annually since 2015, providing networking and professional development opportunities for Crown prosecutors, attorneys and allied professionals across Canada. The goal of the conference is to facilitate the sharing of information and resources about animal abuse and the Violence Link in order to ensure that crimes against animals are prosecuted effectively and efficiently.
The 2021 conference hit record breaking attendance and our roster of speakers delivered up-to-date educational information that will assist prosecutors and allied professionals when coming across an animal abuse file.
The 2022 conference will be hosted online and in-person in Quebec City from November 24 to 25. You can learn more about our work on our Criminal Justice System Reform Program here.
