Women and Gender Equality Canada - Addressing Gender-Based Violence through Promising Practices and Community-Based Research

Friday, February 3, 2023 - 12:00pm

Gender-based violence costs women and gender diverse people their lives. It has profound effects on children. Estimates show that Canadians spend billions every year to deal with the aftermath. Those at highest risk live in rural and remote areas, are Indigenous women, Black women, women with disabilities, women of colour, gender non-binary and 2SLGBTQI+ people.

There are two objectives for this call for proposals:

  • For the Promising Practices stream: The objective is to fund projects to develop, put in place, and evaluate or to scale promising practices to strengthen the GBV sector.
  • For the Community-based Research stream: The objective is to fund research projects that build knowledge to help address the needs of the underserved in the GBV sector.

Application Deadline: February 3, 2023 (12:00 pm (noon) Pacific Time)

Applications must be received in the Office of Research and Innovation a minimum of 5 business days in advance of the application deadline. Applications must be submitted to the Office of Research and Innovation via ROMEO. Please allow enough time for Chair and Dean approval.
