Oxfam Live: Invest in Care Now!

October 27 @ 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm EDT

Join Oxfam Canada’s Interim Executive Director, Kate Higgins, in conversation with Minister Gould and global experts on care 

COVID-19 has laid bare the centrality of care to societies’ well-being. Yet, the care sector continues to be under-funded. We saw how ill-equipped many countries were to deal with the scale of the pandemic. But alarm bells on the looming care crisis were ringing long before COVID-19 hit. It’s time to #InvestInCare and ensure everyone has access to quality care when needed.

We need a feminist economic recovery that has care work at its heart!

Join Oxfam’s live discussion with the Minister of International Development, Karina Gould, and global experts on care to hear about their solutions and vision of a caring economy that advances gender equality.
