FemNorthNet Submission to Standing Committee on Status of Women: GBA+ in Environmental Assessments In early May 2016, FemNorthNet was invited to make a submission to the Standing Committee on the Status of Women regarding "Gender Based Analysis in the Federal Government". Given our extensive research on the lack of gender based analysis in the assessment of resource development and extraction projects, FemNorthNet submitted a brief about the need for Gender Based Analysis Plus (GBA+) in Environmental Assessment (EA) processes in Canada. The brief summarizes our research findings about the current state of gender-based analysis in EA processes across Canada, discusses how GBA+ could be better integrated into EA processes, and emphasizes the fact that GBA+ could mitigate negative impacts of resource development and extraction projects on diverse northern women.

Critical Reflections on Economic Planning in Thompson: An Analysis of TEDWG The Thompson Economic Diversification Working Group (TEDWG) was established in 2011 to create plans for moving Thompson away from reliance on the mining sector towards a more diversified economy. As part of this process, the group held consultations with various stakeholders and considered a number of community aspects seens as supportive of or inhibitive to economic development, including demographic composition, housing issues, education, and community identity. In this report, FemNorthNet examines how diverse women were included and/or excluded from this process and identifies how women's perspectives may have differently shaped the TEDWG conclusions. Our hope is to ensure that women are more actively included and supported in the TEDWG process in the future.
