The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives is collaborating with the Canadian Women’s Foundation, Ontario Nonprofit Network (ONN), and Dr. Kathleen Lahey to prepare a new series: Resetting Normal. The first report, “Funding a Thriving Women’s Sector”, lays out the extraordinary challenges facing women-serving agencies and gender-equity groups to meet rising demands, undermined by a deeply flawed funding model and decades of government imposed austerity.

This crisis has shown that women’s services are essential, and we should start funding them like they are. The report makes the case for new funding approaches to support the women’s sector to effectively mobilize the extraordinary skill, knowledge and expertise of women’s organizations for the benefit of communities across the country.
