The City of Toronto is prepared to launch its first-ever Gender Equity Strategy. The strategy will not be tabled at this month’s City Council meeting, but the City’s Gender Equity Unit will move forward with its launch later this month.
We concluded the consultation process for the Gender Equity Strategy earlier this year. We are eager to share our consultation report, Advancing Gender Equity in the City of Toronto: Elevating the Voices of Women and Gender Diverse Residents, with findings informed by over 1,000 women and gender-diverse residents across the City.
Over the next few months, the Gender Equity Unit will develop an implementation plan that will be presented to the new term of Council in the first quarter of 2023. We'll share our consultation report and strategy as soon as it is public, and we'll keep you updated on opportunities to provide input on the implementation plan.
