Earlier this year, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau created the Gender Equality Advisory Council for Canada’s G7 presidency. The goal of this Council is to ensure gender equality and gender-based analysis are integrated within all aspects of the presidency. The 2018 G7 summit will be in Charlevoix, QC, from June 8-9, 2018.
The Council has completed a report titled “Making Gender Inequality History”, which provides a set of bold recommendations on how to promote gender equality during the G7 presidency. Gender equality is a fundamental human right, and a top priority for Canada. Our Government is committed to working with our international partners at the G7 summit to promote the rights of women and girls.
