Gender-based Analysis Plus
Our goal is to develop inclusive programs and services for Canadian Veterans and their families. For PCVRS team members, this includes material developed for specific communities, including new training on Indigenous Veterans, knowledge of gender pronouns, and understanding of traditional barriers to healthcare faced by these communities.
PCVRS and VAC use the Government of Canada’s Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA Plus) process to assess how diverse groups of women, men and non-binary people may experience policies, programs and initiatives differently. The “Plus” acknowledges that GBA goes beyond biological (sex) and socio-cultural (gender) differences. GBA Plus also takes into account intersecting identity factors (such as age, culture, language, education, sexual orientation, ability, faith, etc.) and how the interaction between these factors can influence one’s experience.
