CRIAW-ICREF relies on the support of members and donors to continue to conduct ground-breaking feminist intersectional research and analysis to advance women’s rights in Canada.

Project based funding is an important, but unstable and restrictive source of funding for us at CRIAW-ICREF. As a not-for-profit member-based organization the support of donors and members provides us more stability and enables us to conduct timely and responsive feminist intersectional research and analysis.

CRIAW-ICREF membership benefits include:

  • Access to all of CRIAW-ICREF’s materials, toolkits and resources.
  • eNewsletter, fact sheets, reports, and policy papers directly in your inbox.
  • Invitation to attend our Annual General Meetings.
  • Connect with other feminist researchers and participate in our feminist research activities, working groups, and committees.

When you join CRIAW-ICREF, you are joining a national feminist research network, made up of community and academy-based researchers. Members can contribute to our work and your membership supports feminist intersectional research for action on women’s rights in Canada.

CRIAW-ICREF is a non-profit organization and federally registered charity (Charitable Registration No: 123269680 RR 0001). We issue tax receipts for donations, and partial tax receipts for membership contributions (amounts over $30, which is the regular membership fee, will be awarded a tax receipt).

There are two ways you can join CRIAW-ICREF.

Monthly Membership

You set the amount that you wish to give monthly, and it is debited automatically. You can end the automatic payments at any time. You will still receive an annual charitable tax receipt but without the hassle of having to renew each year.

Monthly memberships provide CRIAW-ICREF with more reliable and predictable financial support and reduces administration costs, so we can spend more time producing the meaningful work for women’s equality.

Annual Membership

You can also choose to join CRIAW-ICREF through an annual membership fee. Renew your membership once a year and choose the amount you wish to give for your annual membership
