Minister Bibeau announces support to Women’s Voice and Leadership initiative in Haiti
“Women's voices must be heard in all spheres of society, in Canada as in Haiti. We all need women's leadership to change and build a better world. We will not do it if we leave half of humanity behind.”
- Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie
In June 2017, Canada launched its new Women’s Voice and Leadership Program as part of its Feminist International Assistance Policy. Canada committed to allocating $150 million over five years to respond to needs of local women’s organizations in developing countries that are working to advance the rights of women and girls, and promote gender equality.
Today’s announcement highlights the launch of the first project under the Women’s Voice and Leadership Program.
Canada is now a leading donor in supporting women’s rights organizations in developing countries.
