Applications being accepted for Women’s Secretariat Grants

Funding from the Province’s Interministerial Secretariat is available to support women and girls in leadership roles, increase their participation in fields like science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and engage boys and men in gender-based violence prevention.

Girls interests and achievements are often shaped by their environments. This grant funding will support the work of community groups to ensure women and girls have opportunities in leadership roles and areas of our society where they have traditionally been underrepresented. 

- Minister Responsible for the Status of Women, Natalie Jameson
