Working Group on Gender Equity in Sport of the Minister of Science and Sport

Overview

Why a Working Group on Gender Equity in Sport?

Canadians should all have the opportunities to get involved and excel in sport, regardless of gender, age, and ability. They should be able to do so in an environment free of discrimination or harassment.

In Budget 2018, the Government of Canada announced a target to achieve gender equity in sport at every level by 2035. This included an initial commitment of $30 million over three years to support data and research into innovative practices to promote women and girls’ participation in sport, and to support national sports organizations in promoting greater inclusion of women and girls in all facets of sport.

The Minister of Science and Sport has convened a Working Group on Gender Equity in Sport to gather the experiences, perspectives and insights of 12 champions for gender equity in sport and to provide a range of views and advice on strategies to better understand and serve the specific needs of women and girls in sport.

The members of the Working Group will exchange knowledge and experience on women and girls participation in sport through:

Reviewing existing research and data to determine the current status of participation in sport by Canadian women and girls;

  • Sharing personal experiences in sport;
  • Discussing the needs, challenges and barriers faced by women and girls;
  • Discussing trends and issues that may be impacting participation;
  • Highlighting existing opportunities for success;
  • Proposing ideas, approaches and strategies to eliminate barriers and increase participation; and,
  • Identifying and discussing research and data gaps.

A representative working group

The members of the Working Group on Gender Equity in Sport were selected to reflect all facets of the Canadian sport landscape.

The selected individuals represent a wide variety of experiences as sport leaders, media, academics, coaches, and athletes.

Important consideration was also given to diversity, as well as gender, official languages, ethno-cultural backgrounds, age groups, and geographic location to ensure a fair representation of the Canadian population.

Status of women and girls in sport in Canada

The Minister of Science and Sport is responsible for promoting healthier Canadians through sport and recreation, and for ensuring that the Canadian sport system provides all Canadians the opportunity to get involved in sport at all levels – from playground to podium – and in all forms of participation.

Significant work has taken place in recent years to study the status of sport for women and girls. Over the last two decades, there has been progress as the Canadian sport landscape has changed considerably. There are more competitive opportunities for women and girls in more sports. Canadian female athletes are increasingly participating in high performance sport and regularly achieve success internationally.

However, the results of recent studies continue to demonstrate that more work is needed.

Women and girls participate in sport and recreation less than men and boys as athletes, coaches, and leaders in Canada across all demographic categories. There is even less evidence about the experiences of girls with disabilities, Indigenous girls, or girls from any other under-represented group.

The voices and stories of all women and girls, particularly those that do not currently participate in sport, need to be included. Additional work will be done to push and innovate in areas where change is most needed – sport program design, delivery, communication, and media.

Mandate

On this page:

Background

The mandate of the Minister of Science and Sport includes promoting healthier Canadians through sport and recreation and ensuring that the Canadian sport system provides all Canadians with the chance to get involved in sport at all levels – playground to podium – and in all forms of participation.

To support this objective, the Government is setting a target to achieve gender equity in sport at every level by 2035, and proposes to provide an initial $30 million over three years to support data and research and innovative practices to promote women and girls’ participation in sport, and provide support to national sports organizations to promote the greater inclusion of women and girls in all facets of sport.

Significant work has taken place in recent years to study the state of sport for women and girls. Over the last two decades, there has been progress as the Canadian sport landscape has changed considerably. There are more competitive opportunities for women and girls in more sports and Canadian female athletes are increasingly participating in high performance sport and regularly achieving podium success internationally. Nevertheless, the results of recent studies continue to demonstrate that more work is needed. Women and girls remain under-represented in sport and recreation as participants, coaches and leaders in Canada across all demographic categories.

Underlying this state of affairs is that there is a lack of research and data specifically about how sport is experienced by women and girls. There is even less evidence about the experiences of girls with disabilities, Indigenous girls, or girls from any other under-represented group. The voices and stories of all women and girls, particularly those that reject sport, need to be embraced. Additional work is needed to push and innovate in areas where change is most needed – sport program design, delivery, communication and media.

Purpose

The purpose of this Working Group is to gather the experiences, perspectives and insights of champions for gender equity in sport so as to provide the Minister with a range of views and advice on strategies to better understand and serve the needs of women and girls.

Working Group type/term

The Working Group is formed ad hoc with an expected duration of May 2018 to December 31, 2018.

Objective

The objective of the Minister’s Working Group on Gender Equity in Sport is to share experiences, perspectives and insights on how to achieve gender equity in sport by 2035 by discussing the following:

  1. Delivering programming specifically for women and girls in sport;
  2. Addressing gender-based violence in sport including sexual harassment;
  3. Increasing the representation of women in sport leadership positions.

Meetings

The Working Group will meet four (4) to five (5) times over the course of the term.

Meetings will be held at a time, date and location determined by the Chair.

Working Group members are encouraged to participate in meetings in person and where not possible, by teleconference or other means.

Activities

The members of the Working Group will facilitate an exchange of knowledge and experience on women and girls participation in sport through:

  • Reviewing existing research and data to determine the current status of participation in sport by Canadian women and girls;
  • Sharing personal experiences in sport;
  • Discussing the needs, challenges and barriers faced by women and girls;
  • Discussing trends and issues that may be impacting participation;
  • Highlighting existing opportunities for success;
  • Proposing ideas, approaches and strategies for eliminating barriers and increasing participation; and,
  • Identifying and discussing research and data gaps.

Each meeting will focus on one or more elements of the Gender Equity in Sport initiative and include a discussion on the impact of research and data.

Meetings may include the review of reports, research studies, and/or presentations.

The Secretariat will capture a record of the discussions of the Working Group which will be provided as input to the Minister of Science and Sport on the Gender Equity in Sport initiative.

Definitions

Gender Equity is the process of allocating resources, programs, and decision making fairly to both males and females without any discrimination on the basis of sex…and addressing any imbalances in the benefits available to males and females.

This requires ensuring that everyone has access to a full range of opportunities to achieve the social, psychological and physical benefits that come from participating and leading in sport and physical activity. It does not necessarily mean making the same programs and facilities available to both males and females.

Gender equity requires that girls and women be provided with a full range of activity and program choices that meet their needs, interests and experiences. Therefore, some activities may be the same as those offered to boys and men, some may be altered, and some may be altogether different.

Human rights legislation, including the 1982 Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, has affirmed the principles of equity while making provisions for affirmative action programs to eliminate disadvantages.

Gender Equity also requires an examination of organizational practices and policies that may hinder the participation of girls and women. For example, this requires service providers to assess:

  • Hiring and recruitment practices
    • to ensure women have leadership roles, and involved in decision-making, and are available as role models for other girls and women;
  • Resource allocation
    • to determine how budgets are allocated across programs;
  • Facility bookings
    • to ensure that both females and males have access to prime time slots and prime facilities;
  • Participation rates
    • to evaluate current programs and services to identify potential barriers, and to determine whether co-ed programs are truly co-ed;
  • Activity programming
    • to assess the types of activities offered for males and females; and
  • Promotional materials
    • to ensure girls and women are not being excluded or stereotyped in pictures or language.

Positive initiatives that target specific groups are important because they take into account years of socialization and historical traditions that have created imbalances, subsequently marginalizing sectors of the population because these conditions are accepted as the norm.

Meeting summaries

Meeting summary for June 20, 2018

On June 20, 2018, the Minister’s Working Group on Gender Equity in Sport (The Working Group) had its first in-person meeting to discuss the role of the Federal Government in improving and increasing the participation of women and girls in sport, who consistently participate at lower rates than their male counter-parts. The meeting consisted of the following sessions:

  • Welcoming remarks and planning discussion;
  • An empathy-based icebreaker activity;
  • A breakout session wherein the Working Group separated into two groups that each developed “actions we can take tomorrow to improve participation for women and girls”;
  • A debriefing exercise wherein the groups described their actions; and,
  • A lightening round wherein each member proposed two high priority actions for the Government of Canada.

The top areas of interest for the members were as follows:

  • Getting women into leadership positions so they can model positive sport participation for others and contribute to the design of programs that will be more welcoming for women and girls;
  • Having Sport Canada integrate gender equity principles into its funding agreements (possibly withholding funding from organizations that are not actively working to improve gender equity within their sphere of influence); and,
  • Improving the quality of the coaching that women and girls receive to ensure that women and girls have the skills necessary to thrive in sport and enjoy their sport experiences.

Implementation areas

The group made some suggestions which could be quickly actioned by Sport Canada in the short term:

  • Engage in research to develop a picture of grassroots participation and conduct an assessment of National Sport Organizations (NSO) and Multisport Service organizations successes.
  • Fund additional research on girls’ participation: there is still so much we do not know. This could be accomplished using money allocated in Budget 2018 for reaching gender equity in sport at all levels.
  • Increase funding to the Female Coach Mentorship Program currently being piloted by the Coaching Association of Canada.

The Working Group made some suggestions which could be actioned by Sport Canada in the medium term:

  • Connect the sport volunteer base with the formal sport leadership by developing a participation strategy toolkit that NSO could use to create a participation strategy appropriate to their sport.
  • Ensure that women and girls have examples of athletic success and excellence to aspire to by working with national team athletes receiving support through the Athlete Assistance Program and/or other Sport Canada clients.
  • Explore how Sport Canada could contribute to the participation of women and girls at the community-level.
