Gender Equality Week

Gender Equality Week 2021

Gender Equality Week 2021 is September 19-25. This year’s theme, Advancing gender equality for all, is an opportunity to celebrate the progress Canada has made to date in advancing gender equality, while reflecting on the work that remains to make sure that everyone – regardless of their gender – can reach their full potential.

Gender equality benefits everyone—women, men, non-binary people and people of all gender identities—and can lead to greater health, happiness, and economic prosperity.

The need to pursue gender equality is even more important now, as the COVID-19 pandemic has been shown to disproportionately affect women and amplify gender inequalities.

When we take steps to advance gender equality, we can remove the barriers that hold us back and create a world of possibilities. Let’s work together to make Canada a place where people of all genders can reach their full potential.
