Women and Gender Equality Canada (WAGE) is inviting Calls for Proposals


Women and Gender Equality Canada (WAGE) is inviting Indigenous not-for-profit organizations in Canada with experience working on gender-based violence (GBV) issues for Indigenous women, girls or 2SLGBTQQIA+ people to submit proposals for projects.

The objective of this call for proposals is to increase the capacity of Indigenous not-for-profit organizations with experience working on GBV issues. Funded projects will increase their ability to prevent or address the root causes of GBV against Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people.

The Department will give priority to projects submitted by:

  • Indigenous organizations led by Indigenous women and Indigenous 2SLGBTQQIA+ people
  • Indigenous local organizations that serve Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people
  • Larger Indigenous organizations that will partner with other Indigenous organizations to prevent violence

Eligible organizations must submit their application for funding in this call for proposals by March 10, 2022.
