Status of Women committee  We gave our time over so Ms. Hutchison could frame the issue, but I would say that we also circulated our brief to everybody on the committee. In the brief is a very detailed outline of a project we're currently funded for under Status of Women Canada. Again, in terms of what's

Status of Women committee  No, these are pilot community development projects because this is a community development approach. One of the things we know at DAWN Canada, and I think most people in the VAW sector recognize, is that change happens on the ground in communities. This is research with a purpo

Status of Women committee  I hope the committee will call the other woman I mentioned; she would be really important to hear from.

Status of Women committee  I think we should do this given what the statistics show us, which is that while there is certainly, from a gender perspective, a rising issue among men, this is something that is affecting women in mind-boggling numbers. The consequence of this is that the gender analysis and fe

Status of Women committee  The only thing I've ever seen on women with disabilities, for example, would be a show that actually is a bit of a bad example of trying to feature women with disabilities. I think it's called Push Girls, a show that was playing on the Life channel last year. I don't know if anyo

Status of Women committee  I can. Insofar as forced treatment is a huge issue, particularly for women with a mental health disability, there are so many dimensions to that. We could spend an entire other committee, I'm sure, just on that issue. Electric shock treatment is one of the ones that I think is pr

Status of Women committee  Thank you again for allowing me to get back and get my document correctly printed. I will say that my president took quite a bit of time to review the previous testimonies and certainly that impacted the way that we chose to prepare for today. As we already heard from NEDIC, th

Status of Women committee  Thank you. I've of course discovered on arriving, because I had to print everything and prepare very quickly, that there are some pages missing from my presentation, so I will start with saying, first of all, thank you very much for inviting the DisAbled Women's Network of Canad

Status of Women committee  Yes, if possible, as I would like to have access to the document in order to print the missing pages.

Human Resources committee  Thank you. In respect of the reality that the government has made commitments, you've heard from a lot of us about the EI sick benefits. I understand the government's concern about cost and what the cost would be with the change in EI sick benefits. But I think it's important to

Human Resources committee  Thank you, Ms. Perreault. To be perfectly frank with you, there's been no improvement in the situation of women with disabilities. When you look at the figures, you see that that segment of the population still has the highest unemployment rate in Canadian society. We're talkin

Status of Women committee  In what context, Judy? I'm sorry, but I don't understand.

Status of Women committee  Well, Chheng's actually working in my office. Again, this comes back to the question of leadership. It's something that I speak to often. Chheng and I have both committed to a leadership project that steps both of us outside ourselves to work on an international project that will

Status of Women committee  In terms of an overall approach—I'll be very blunt, Joyce—my organization is very underfunded. In terms of how I do a lot of my work, I have to do it very creatively. One of the things that we did in DAWN as an approach is that we adopted a mantra that's really a strategic plan.
