Earl Silverman was the founder of Men’s Alternative Safe House (MASH), believed to be the only men's domestic violence shelter in Canada at the time.[1] In 2013, Mr Silverman took his own life shortly after his efforts to keep MASH funded failed and he was forced to close its doors.

Mr Silverman's will directed that the funds should be dispersed so as to create an educational scholarship for male victims of female perpetrated domestic violence. Courts in Alberta directed that the funds should be dispersed to the Mount Royal University Foundation for this purpose.[2]
