Gender Equality Portal

Grand Challenges Canada is committed to supporting gender equality, and is proud to partner with the Government of Canada in bringing its new Feminist International Assistance Policy to life. Canada’s ongoing global leadership on gender equality will help drive progress toward the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goal Five: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

The purpose of this section of our website is to provide a comprehensive set of gender equality tools, supported, where appropriate, by case studies. These tools are targeted at innovators, policy makers, impact investors and others who are interested in supporting and enhancing gender equality through innovation.
