Benefits of Membership

For organizations

  • You can participate in shaping Canada’s women, peace and security priorities, investments, and programs.  Our Network is constant discussion (both formal and informal) with officials and politicians on the WPS agenda in Canada. We co-chair the WPS Advisory Group.  This Group has two formal meetings a year and includes membership of all the Government departments who have signed on to the NAP.

  • You will have access to meetings and events with decision-makers.  Our Network is the go-to organization for the Government on WPS issues.  In various events, members have been able to dialogue directly with politicians and officials.  For example, in October 2017 we hosted an evening for parliamentarians, where members engaged in discussions with a MPs and Senators. An example: at the request of Minister Freeland’s office, we recently organized a consultation on the proposed WPS Ambassador.

  • Contributions from your staff can be included in Network publications. We have issued three publications that feature reflections and analysis from Network members.  Our most recent publication was highly praised by the Director General of the Peace and Stabilization Operations Program at Global Affairs, Larissa Galadza.  She noted that it was widely circulated to WPS staff across Government departments.
