In April 2021, through the Community Engagement Initiative (CEI), YWCA Canada coordinated consultations with civil society organizations & grassroots groups and presented survivor-centric and community informed recommendations to the Government of Canada to inform the National Action Plan to End Gender-Based Violence, later released in November 2022.
As the National Action Plan is being phased in, it is necessary to keep our collective attention on survivor-led recommendations for systems level change. YWCA Canada’s preliminary report, “What We Heard: Survivor-Led Strategies to Inform the National Action Plan to End Gender-Based Violence” highlights recommendations, key learnings and concrete calls to accountability and action co-developed by 60+ civil society organizations and the communities across Canada that we engage with and represent.
