About This Charity

Our Mission

The Canadian National Committee for the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women (UN WOMEN National Committee Canada) is a non-profit organization that raises UN WOMEN's profile and promotes its work in Canada. The UN WOMEN National Committee Canada was founded with a vision to promote Equality for all Women.

About Our Charity

Gender equality is not only a basic human right, but its achievement has enormous socio-economic ramifications. Empowering women fuels thriving economies, spurring productivity and growth.

Yet gender inequalities remain deeply entrenched in every society. Women lack access to decent work and face occupational segregation and gender wage gaps. They are too often denied access to basic education and health care. Women in all parts of the world suffer violence and discrimination. They are under-represented in political and economic decision-making processes.

UN Women was created to address such challenges. It is a dynamic and strong champion for women and girls, providing them with a powerful voice at the global, regional and local levels.. We work to improve the lives of women in Canada and around the world.

Your generosity today will provide a better tomorrow for girls and women worldwide.
