• Status of Women Canada launches a call for proposals
avr. 07, 2016

Status of Women Canada is inviting organizations to submit proposals for projects to increase women’s participation in democratic and public life.

Our new call for proposals – Support for Women’s Empowerment – is divided into two streams.


Under the first stream, Empowering Indigenous Women for Stronger Communities, the Government of Canada will support projects that will strengthen the voices of Indigenous women on issues of importance to them and their communities.


Projects under the second stream will focus on two themes. The first, Empowering Women for Political Action, will promote the participation of women in political life (e.g. addressing barriers to running for elected positions). The second, Empowering Women for Community Action, will include projects that improve conditions for women by amplifying women’s voices and enhancing their civic participation.
