This funding will enable women’s organizations and Indigenous organizations serving women to tackle systemic barriers impeding women’s progress, while recognizing and addressing the diverse experiences of gender and inequality across the country.

SASC Ottawa was one of 14 organizations to receive funding, and we are excited to develop new ways to support survivors in our community over the next 5 years.
