On August 30, 2019 – Sainte-Julie (Quebec) – Women and gender Equality in Canada
Women’s organizations provide critical services to our communities : they help women and girls to achieve financial security, to escape the violence and to participate fully in all aspects of our economy and our society. Yet, for far too long, these agencies have been under-funded, under-estimated and undermined. The government of Canada recognizes the vital importance of women’s organizations to the women’s movement, and understands that the most effective way of advancing gender equality is to maintain and develop the capacity of these organizations to carry out their valuable work.
That is why today, Michel Picard, mna for Montarville, has announced, on behalf of the honourable Miriam Monsef, minister of international Development and minister for Women and gender Equality, the government of Canada will invest 115 408 $ in the Center of women Between the Wings, Sainte-Julie, to promote the growth of the body, especially in enabling him to develop a new strategy for the defence of rights, to prepare a strategic plan and build partnerships so that it can advance gender equality.
Centre of women Between the Wings is part of the approximately 250 women’s organizations and aboriginal organizations in the service of women in Canada selected to receive funding from the government of Canada under the capacity building Fund. The following represents the allocation of $ 100 million over five years, announced in the Budget of 2018, to promote the viability and sustainability of the movement of women from one end of Canada to another.
“With these historic investments, we recognize the contribution of women and women’s organizations that are working to break down barriers and to them we express our gratitude, knowing the meagre resources at their disposal in recent decades. The women’s movement in Canada has claimed a reliable source of funding, predictable and accessible to ensure the sustainability of its work. As we have heard. Our funding is stable and flexible will help these agencies in Sainte-Julie, to grow and to continue
