Women’s History Month - celebrating women's achievements

Since 1992, October has been recognized as Women’s History Month in Canada – a time to celebrate the incredible achievements of women. Canadian women have shaped and continue to shape our country – with their strength, wisdom and courage.

This year’s selected theme by the Status of Women Canada is Celebrating Immigrant Women in Canada. The National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) is pleased that the government is acknowledging the important contribution that immigrant women make to Canada. NUPGE notes, however, the hypocrisy of the government’s withdrawal of funding from groups that provide a voice for immigrant women.
