Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague from Long Range Mountains for her leadership and for the opportunity to update the House on two new ways that we are working to advance gender equality with our partners.
Last Monday, I announced a new funding envelope open until December 11. Women's organizations and indigenous organizations advancing gender equality are invited to apply for support to enhance their capacity.
The following day, I announced a partnership with the Government of Yukon worth $1.6 million to support the work of three women's organizations.
Canadians expect us to work together, and we are.
