Stopping Gender Based Violence is past due

Plan to end Gender-Based violence is long Past Due

Community needs have increased significantly during the pandemic


Community-based organizations that have the trust and expertise to support survivors of gender-based violence need to be supported. Vital services that promote mental health and healing are on hold and waitlists are growing. But due to COVID-19, they are at risk of shuttering.

Today more than ever, we need your help to continue to be there for women, girls, and gender diverse people.

With your support, we will make sure we continue to be there for our communities when they need us the most.

We need comprehensive action and all hands on deck to address, prevent, and eliminate Gender-Based Violence for good.


As the crisis continues, YWCA Canada will work towards stopping the rollback of human rights and gender equity that generations before us achieved. We will not stand by, and we cannot wait for bold actions and investments.

Your gift will help us support community action in 300 communities and actively push your voice through national advocacy. Through this, governments and other stakeholders will step up and do the right thing by investing in preventing gender-based violence in all its insidious forms.

2020 has moved us towards self-reflection. It is helping us question the status quo, and I hope it is driving us to more action for profound change.
