The federal government agency which promotes gender equality and the full participation of women in the economic, cultural and social life of the country.

Status of Women Canada, created in 1971, is the federal government agency which promotes gender equality and the full participation of women in the economic, cultural and social life of the country.  It is responsible for increasing the capacity of the Government of Canada to implement the Gender-Based Analysis (GBA) policy, and supports other federal departments’ efforts in building GBA capacity.

Two key federal initiatives through the Status of Women Canada include:

The Federal Plan on Gender Equality (1995-2000)

  • commitment to gender-based analysis

Agenda for Gender Equality (2000-2005)

  • commitment to mainstreaming through the Gender-based Analysis Directorate
