Gender-based analysis added to impact assessment services

The new federal impact assessment approach will require a gender-based analysis (GBA).

I recently completed the Gender-Based Analysis Plus (GBA+) course offered by Status of Women Canada.  This analytical tool helps one assess the potential impacts (positive or negative) of projects, plans and policies on women, men and gender-diverse people, enabling identification of risks and creation of mitigation strategies.  The “+” signifies that GBA+ goes beyond sex and gender and considers other identity factors, such as race, ethnicity, religion, age, and mental or physical ability.
