Women Deliver 2019 Mobilization Canada is a rallying cry for unity in gender equality and girls and women’s empowerment. The Mobilization is a national movement to improve Canadian leadership on gender equality and drive progress for the health, rights and wellbeing of women and girls globally and domestically. It is an inclusive movement which welcomes any organization to join. We all have a role to play in moving the needle on gender equality!
Women Deliver 2019 Mobilization Canada is seizing upon the global spotlight and momentum that the Women Deliver Conference provides. We engage with average citizens across Canada to improve our country’s leadership on gender equality and to generate increased investment in the health, rights and wellbeing of women and girls.
In order to achieve real results, the Mobilization is focusing on three key Action Areas where progress is most needed: Gender Responsive Health System and Services, Gender-Based Violence and Women’s Economic Empowerment and Equal Opportunity.

The WDMC 2019 project contributed in a substantive way to increase inclusive participation of Canadians in and around the Women Deliver conference and ensure that the conference was a ‘fueling station’ to galvanize Canadian efforts and energy to ensure a lasting leadership on global health and gender equality.
The initiative (1) supported the ‘Canada Pavilion’ platform, a hub for and mobilizer-lead events that ran alongside the Women Deliver conference; (2) coordinated over 50 bursary recipients from across Canada who received financial support to attend the conference through a Women and Gender Equality (WaGE) grant administered by CanWaCH; (3) convening the sector through events, such as a CanWaCH reception, Ministerial reception post-funding announcement, and a public Culture Night; and (4) providing sector support for various initiatives, such as financial and human resource contributions to the Longhouses and Feminist Deliver.
