Policy review for gender inclusiveness

We lead gender and diversity analysis for the Yukon government to enhance the effectiveness of legislation, policies and programs.

We work closely with women’s organizations to integrate the concerns of Aboriginal women, immigrant women, women with disabilities and other groups.

Examples of work that has benefited from a gender and diversity lens:

  • Yukon Child Tax Benefit | Department of Finance
  • Family Violence Prevention Act | Department of Justice
  • Gender Equity in Public Schools Policy | Department of Education
  • Victims of Abuse Policy | Yukon Housing Corporation
  • Children’s Act | Health and Social Services
