Announcing the ‘Canada Pavilion’ at Women Deliver 2019: Call for Applications for Event Space

The official call for applications is now closed! 

CanWaCH and Women Deliver 2019 Mobilization Canada (WDMC) have secured Steamworks to be the home of the ‘Canada Pavilion’ during the Women Deliver 2019 Conference taking place in Vancouver June 3-6.

Less than a 10-minute walk away from the conference at the Vancouver Convention Centre, the Canada Pavilion will be the go-to location for multiple events hosted by Canadian organizations between June 2nd to 7th, alongside the Women Deliver Conference. If you are a CanWaCH member or Women Deliver Mobilizer interested in hosting an event at the Canada Pavilion, learn more and apply here

CanWaCH and WDMC are providing the venue space, basic A/V and basic furniture requirements at no cost for CanWaCH members and Women Deliver Mobilization 2019 Canada ‘Mobilizers’ to host events that seek to advance the conversation on women’s health, rights and wellbeing and gender equality. Non-CanWaCH members and non-Women Deliver Mobilizers may apply to be ‘waitlisted’ for the event space, however, preference will be given to CanWaCH Members and Women Deliver Mobilizers. 

Throughout the selection process, CanWaCH and WDMC will prioritize proposed events that provide a balanced representation of CanWaCH Members and of WDMC Mobilizers. Consideration will be given to areas of focus, geographic location, Canada’s official languages, and organization size. Preference will be given to events where more than one CanWaCH Member and/or Women Deliver Mobilizer are working together; however individual organizations are still encouraged to apply. We will only accept applications that include a Canadian-based organization. International organizations may apply if partnered with a Canadian organization. 

The venue space is available from Sunday, June 2, 2019, starting at 4:00 pm until Friday, June 7, 2019, at 11:00 am. Due to high demand, we are accelerating the application process for the Canada Pavilion at Women Deliver. As a result, the deadline has been moved up to Monday, March 18th at 5 pm ET. Applications received after this date will be placed on a waitlist.
