We are currently trying to evaluate the Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSA’s) that each candidate may bring to the board. As we are a growing organization we need to ensure we have as many aspects of diversity addressed, but we are also a working board so we need board members who bring the right KSA’s to help the organization continue to grow. To this end, we have a template we would ask you to complete this week and return to us.

First, we marched. Now, we move forward.
On January 21, 2017 thousands of Canadians, many of us waving signs and wearing pointy-eared pink hats, gathered in cities and towns across the country to show solidarity with the massive Women’s March in Washington.
Women, and their allies, in Canada, came to march, speak and make our voices heard. But it doesn’t end here - now is not the time to hang up our marching shoes - it’s time to get our friends, family, and community together and make history.
Today, our mission is to inspire, unite and lead the charge for the advancement of women across Canada. Our vision is to make equality of women in Canada the new norm.
All dollars raised will support Women's March Canada efforts moving forward. At this time, Women's March Canada, while registered as a not for profit organization, is not a registered charity and we are unable to issue official donation receipts for income tax purposes.
Our organization needs community support to keep going!
Help us have consistent, year-round funding, donate monthly.

For three years, we've marched in cities across Canada. Our mission is to inspire, unite and lead the charge for the advancement of women across Canada.
Now we take action. Are you ready?
The work that we do, our vision and values can be explained in a unifying framework called H.E.R.S., which spells out the women’s rights priorities of Health, Economic Security, Representation, and Safety:
- Health — Healthcare is the foundation of women’s well-being and economic stability. Women’s March Canada advocates for access to affordable and inclusive women’s healthcare regardless of nationality, age, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or disability.
- Economic Security — Women are powerful drivers of economic growth, and their economic empowerment benefits all nations. Women’s March Canada supports the dismantling of economic barriers that obstruct women’s full and equal access to local, national, and global economic systems.
- Representation — Women are under-represented globally, adversely affecting our collective health, safety, and economic security. Women’s March Canada seeks fair and just representation of women locally, nationally, and internationally.
- Safety — Every woman has the need and right to feel physically secure, and security for women should be assured through sound legal practices. Women’s March Canada stands behind the principle that women are not to be held accountable for actions that are outside their control — particularly regarding all forms of assault — and that fair legal action must be applied to prevent these crimes.
In March 2019, we'll be gathering (virtually) women from across the country and asking them to roll up their sleeves and help us work on the Women's March Canada strategic plan (to be announced by the end of January).
