Gender-based analysis plus
The nature of the Commission’s work as Canada’s national human rights institution puts us in a unique position. At least 60% of employees already have significant expertise in the analysis and assessment of the grounds of discrimination, including intersectionality, which far surpasses specific GBA+ training.
The organization is more sensitive to GBA+ issues generally, as such; we are able to incorporate this knowledge into the Commission’s day to day operations.
The Commission is committed to ensuring that the differential impacts on diverse groups of people are considered when policies, programs and initiatives are developed. The Commission has named a GBA+ champion responsible for the application and monitoring of this approach.
|Human resources||There are 105 FTEs that perform analysis beyond what is required by GBA+ as part of their day to day work.|
The following initiatives aim to advance GBA+ and will be applied and monitored in 2018–19.
All of these initiatives are part of the core work of the Commission. Performance indicators have been established and will be monitored and reported in the Departmental Results Report.
