  • Status of Women Canada (SWC) led the development of a strategy to prevent and address Gender-Based Violence. Through cross-country roundtables and online consultations, SWC engaged over 7,600 experts, Indigenous leaders, front-line service providers and survivors to identify research priorities, key issues, challenges and best practices, in addressing this important issue.
  • SWC provided advice on 27 major policy initiatives, contributed to the gender-based analysis (GBA+) of budgetary measures for Budget 2017, and provided in-depth GBA+ training to 70 designated gender advisors from 30 departments and agencies. These measures contributed to ensuring that federal initiatives consider the different impacts they will have on women and men.
  • For the first time, SWC launched a call exclusively for projects specific to issues affecting Indigenous women and girls, to strengthen the voices of Indigenous women on issues affecting them or hindering their advancement in all aspects of life. Approximately $5 million will be invested over three years in projects that address four themes: violence against indigenous women and girls; human rights and governance; economic prosperity; and health and wellness.
