This toolkit outlines five key issue areas; each highlights the key stakeholders, party platforms, and current policies, and government strategies.This toolkit does not provide policy recommendations; rather, it provides an overview of relevant environmental and energy issues, while showcasing potential policy innovations and strategies for engagement.
Engaging Canadian women in environment and energy issues is imperative to ensure that we meet the current generation's needs without reducing the ability of future generations. From empowering women to take part in STEM disciplines, to preventing environmental degradation, women’s participation is critical to Canada’s energy and environment future.
Canada’s energy industry makes up $187 billion of our economy, and is responsible for over 5% of Canada’s jobs. Given the importance of this sector, it is absolutely critical that women are involved in shaping the future of this industry, from both within the industry, as well as through informed advocacy positions.
