The theme for Gender Equality Week is Gender equality benefits everyone, inspired by the vision of a gender equal society and the benefits of advancing gender equality to women, men and people of all gender identities. When we make progress towards gender equality, #EveryoneBenefits!

Throughout the week, CCIC will be showcasing some of the work our members are doing to advance gender equality. Visit our site often to learn more.

Gender Equality Week is the result of Bill C-309, the Gender Equality Week Act, which received Royal Assent on June 21, 2018. This legislation designates the fourth week in September as Gender Equality Week. To learn more about the campaign, visit the Status of Women Canada page.
