Women and Gender Equality Canada 2022–23 Departmental Plan

The Government of Canada is investing in and taking action to address persistent gender inequalities that affect all people in Canada. To make progress towards a country where people of all genders are equal in every way and can achieve their full potential, in 2022-23 Women and Gender Equality Canada (WAGE) will continue to take action to advance more equitable social, political, and economic outcomes for women, girls, and people of all genders in Canada. In particular, the department will focus on four priority areas:

- Preventing and addressing gender-based violence

- Strategic action and engagement to address systemic barriers to gender equality

- Ensuring GBA Plus throughout federal government decision-making processes

- Supporting community action to advance gender equality
