YWCA Canada's Recommendations for the Federal Budget Submission 2024

Annually, YWCA Canada and Member Associations serve over 330,000 women, girls and gender diverse people. We are the largest provider of affordable housing and emergency shelters for women, the largest provider of employment and counselling services to women, and the second largest provider of childcare in Canada. We advance gender-equity through fighting gender-based violence, building and operating shelters and affordable housing, and advocating for workplace equity.    

This is why, in August 2023, YWCA Canada submitted 4 recommendations to the federal government for the budget 2024 

  • End anti-Indigenous racism and violence against Indigenous women, girls, and Two-Spirit people. 
  • End the gendered housing crisis  
  • End gender-based violence 
  • Invest in careers to strengthen Canada’s economy
