The Canadian Women’s Foundation has received funding from the Government of Canada’s Department for Women and Gender Equality (WAGE) to support women’s and gender-equality seeking organizations working on gender-based violence during the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding is a portion of the federal government’s August 2021 announcement on funding to address gender-based violence and advance gender equality.
