Call for Proposals announced by Global Affairs Canada:  Women as agents of change in the Americas

Deadline: March 13, 2019

Global Affairs Canada has launched a call for preliminary proposals to enhance gender equality and empowerment of women and girls in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region. This call will seek projects that focus on up to three areas targeting gender equality by: (i) enhancing women and girls’ participation in public life; (ii) preventing and responding to sexual and gender-based violence; and (iii) promoting women’s economic empowerment. 

Your proposed project must also contribute to at least one of the following intermediate outcomes:

  • enhanced and more systematic engagement of women in public leadership and decision-making processes in LAC, including on climate-change issues;
  • strengthened prevention and response to sexual and gender-based violence by individuals and state or non-state actors in LAC (e.g. civic, advocacy, service-oriented and faith-related, academia, private sector, media organizations and regional organizations);
  • improved and more equitable access to employment and control over resources by women in LAC.

Please note that as UAlberta can only submit one proposal; UAlberta International is coordinating submission of proposals for this call.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please contact by February 9, 2019:
