COVID-19 Feminist Response
and Recovery Project

The COVID-19 Feminist Response and Recovery Project is designed to leverage the heightened awareness and societal sensitivity to how gender and intersectional factors have disproportionately impacted Canadian women throughout the COVID-19 crisis. It recognizes the importance of ensuring that the individual experiences and unique needs of all Canadian women in all their diversity are included in the post-COVID-19 recovery plans of key stakeholders. The project uses an intentional inclusive outreach and engagement strategy to build capacity for informed intersectional gender-based equality and solution-building by Canadian businesses, community organizations and government stakeholders. It acknowledges that it will take collaborative multi-stakeholder partnerships to address the systemic vulnerabilities and gender-based bias and inequities highlighted by the pandemic. In addition, the project’s gender equality innovation challenge will spark a variety of innovative IDEAS – for Inclusion, Diversity, Equality, Access, and Solutions in Canada’s workplace, marketplace and communities.
