Our projects aim to dismantle gender-based discrimination and move toward gender justice across our six issue areas.

We strive to bring about social change through community-engaged projects that centre the most impacted marginalized by overlapping systems of oppression. We do this collaboratively and in partnerships that enable us to listen deeply and work alongside those with lived expertise.

Our projects often span years, building on one another and weaving together a body of work that connects community knowledge, research, outreach, and advocacy. Each project can include various tools and tactics, including policy submissions, litigation evidence-based reports, community-engaged webinars, films and media, and much more. 

By utilizing a gender-based perspective and working closely with community partners, we endeavor to create projects that reflect our values and align with substantive equality principles. Our projects fall within and often span several of our six issue areas:

Access to healthcare, including discrimination in healthcare, substance use, mental healthcare, and gender-affirming healthcare.

Access to justice, including access to legal aid, safety and justice for migrants and refugees, child support and the feminization of poverty.

Economic security, which includes pay equity, access to financial supports, and access to housing and transportation.

Freedom from gender-based violence, including supports for survivors, justice for MMIWG, family violence and legal aid.

Justice for those who are criminalized, including prisoners rights, solitary confinement, and the rights of sex workers and people who use drugs.

Family wellbeing, which includes the family policing/child welfare system, Indigenous approaches to family wellbeing, and family law.
