The Community After Incident Response (CAIR) is a project initiated by the City of Edmonton's Community Safety Initiatives. Through partnership with various agencies, they provide support to communities impacted by traumatic events (such as a homicide, public suicide, hate crime). This support includes:

  • Providing a safe space for the community members to talk about what occurred and the effects it has had on them
  • Providing access to mental health resources to help them to heal

Communities can be defined by geographical area, as well as cultural and sociopolitical communities.
