The Equal Futures Network, an initiative of the Canadian Partnership for Women and Children’s Health (CanWaCH), will host Equal Futures 2023: A Gender Equality Summit in Whitehorse from May 17-18, 2023.

This second annual event builds off of the success of our first-ever gender equality summit in June 2022 where over 200 champions for gender equality from communities across Canada gathered in Ottawa. 

The summit will provide an in-person forum for the gender equality movement in Canada to come together, in all its diversity, to strengthen capacity, share expertise, and shape a path towards a fairer and more equitable Canada. The summit will also be webcast in English and French for those who are unable to attend in-person and ensure access to all.


More information, including programming and registration details, will be communicated through the Equal Futures: A Gender Equality Summit mailing list and the Equal Futures Network’s social media channels.

Equal Futures 2023 is taking place on the traditional territory of Kwanlin Dün First Nation and Ta’an Kwäch’än Council.

The Equal Futures Network acknowledges that Indigenous people are the traditional guardians of Turtle Island, on the land also known as Canada
