25 years ago, the Canadian House of Commons unanimously passed an all-party resolution to end child poverty in Canada by the year 2000. Since then, an entire generation of children have grown up impoverished, experiencing hunger, unstable housing and suffering from the impacts low wages, unemployment, discrimination, stress, and inequality have had on their families.

We are proud to share with you that yesterday, alongside over 100 women’s organizations and their allies, we launched Up for Debate—a campaign calling on all federal political parties to make meaningful commitments to change women’s lives for the better, at home and around the world.

Women in Canada have questions. Up for Debate challenges our leaders to answer them.

Help build a Canada that works for women!
