Call for Proposals to Address Gender-based Violence through Promising Practices and Community-based Research

 

From Women and Gender Equality Canada Pacific Region 

Women and Gender Equality Canada is inviting:

Organizations with experience working on gender-based violence (GBV) issues that meet all the eligibility requirements to submit a proposal for funding.

This call for proposals is comprised of two funding streams.

 

Stream 1: Promising Practices

The objective of this stream is to strengthen the GBV sector through projects that will:

  • develop, put in place, and evaluate promising practices; or,
  • scale a successful promising practice in a new location or with a new population.

The Department will give priority to projects which:

  • Develop, put in place, and evaluate a promising practice for at-risk populations:
    • that engages men and boys as allies in the prevention of GBV;
    • to prevent human trafficking; or
    • to enhance supports for victims and survivors of human trafficking.
  • Scale a promising practice that has been tested and shown positive results;
  • Prevent and address GBV as experienced by Black or racialized women, women immigrants, refugees and newcomers, women living with disabilities, 2SLGBTQI+ people, or northern communities; and/or,
  • Address any other gap, such as geography, as deemed by the Department.

 

Stream 2: Community-based Research

The objective of this stream is to fund research projects that build knowledge to help address the needs of the underserved population in the GBV sector such as Black or racialized women, women immigrants, refugees and newcomers, women living with disabilities, Indigenous women, or 2SLGBTQI+ people.

The Department will give priority to projects which:

  • Have a local or regional scope of work; and/or,
  • Address any other gap, such as geography, as deemed by the Department.

 

Eligible organizations must submit their application for funding in this call for proposals by February 3, 2023.
