The City’s Community & Social Services Department is seeking input from residents to shape Phase 2 of the Women & Gender Equity Strategy (WGES). The WGES ensures that the City of Ottawa’s services, strategies, and plans integrate women and gender equity and equality.

How to get involved:

In April 2021, the first Women and Gender Equity Strategy (WGES) was approved by Ottawa City Council. The strategy guides the City’s actions to advance gender equity through inclusive strategies and services.

Phase 1 of the strategy is underway and focuses on:

  • Introducing gender-sensitive policy changes internally in City’s plans, strategies and services,
  • Raising awareness of staff on women and gender equity, and
  • Integrating a gender lens in City data system.

As directed by Council, Phase 2 of WGES aims to implement meaningful change by working alongside community organizations. Phase 2 plans include the development of a strong internal and external strategic framework (2023-2025), which builds on the successes laid out by Phase 1 strategic framework (2021-2023).

The purpose of the Phase 2 engagement is to collect feedback from residents, community stakeholders and City staff on women and gender gaps and service needs, with a focus on the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women, gender diverse persons, and non-binary persons.
