About the Report Card

The BC Gender Equality Report Card 2019/2020 assesses the BC government’s progress in advancing human rights and gender justice between December 2018 and early April 2020. It explores six issue areas: access to justice; economic security; freedom from gender-based violence; health care; justice for people who are criminalized; and the rights of parents, children, and youth. Insights from community dialogues held in partnership with PACE Society, Urban Native Youth Association, and the Coalition Against Trans Antagonism ground the Report Card in firsthand community knowledge. The Report Card also highlights principles from international law to hold the BC government accountable to globally recognized human rights standards.

Heartfelt thanks to the community dialogue participants, research volunteers, community reviewers, and our generous project funders, the Law Foundation of BC and Health Sciences Association of BC.
