Labour and Employment Policy

Our goal for NWAC’s labour and employment projects is to advocate for labour legislation and programming that meets the needs of Indigenous women, girls, and gender-diverse people. We are also working to eliminate labour and employment inequities with their non-Indigenous and male counterparts across Canada.

Specific goals are as follows:

  • Recognize the principle of equal pay for equivalent work among Indigenous men, women, and gender-diverse people
  • Remove employment inequalities among Indigenous and non-Indigenous women and gender-diverse people
