Status of Women Canada

Support for Women’s Economic Security: Building Partnerships to Address Systemic Barriers

Deadline: November 27, 2017 at 12:00PM (Pacific)
Call Description: With this call for proposals, organizations across the country will implement projects designed to address some of the root causes of economic insecurity for women in Canada (e.g. accessibility of childcare, wage gap, pay inequity). Achieving gender equality requires the participation of a wide range of actors. This call for proposals is a call to action to equality-seeking organizations to mobilize and work together to find sustainable solutions that meet the lifelong economic security needs of women in Canada. Projects under this call will engage key stakeholders (civil society, private sector/sector leaders, professional or industry associations, economic development organizations, training institutions, leading experts, governments, and other relevant partners) across various sectors to implement systemic solutions to improve the economic security of women. Recognizing that systemic issues often intersect, projects that address women’s economic security as it relates to other issues will also be considered (e.g. women’s economic insecurity is both a cause and an outcome of violence against women).
