Supporting and celebrating women in our communities

Council is committed to making Vancouver a place where all women and girls have full access to the range of services and resources provided by the City.

We also make sure that all women have opportunities to fully participate in the political, economic, cultural and social life of Vancouver.

To recognize and celebrate the important role women play in our community – and promote equality – we have initiated several programs.

How the City supports women and girls


We’re providing young women with an opportunity to learn about civic government and gain mentorship from members of Council.

We recognize and value the contributions of the diverse communities that make Vancouver one of the most livable cities in the world.
