Findings from an Environmental Scan on SGBA+ in Health Impact Assessment Webinar
This webinar was presented on May 6, 2021 by the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women (CRIAW-ICREF). Participants joined us for a presentation and discussion about CRIAW-ICREF’s environmental scan of domestic and international good practices to integrate sex- and gender- based analysis plus (SGBA+) in health impact assessments. The environmental scan was done to support the implementation of new requirements in Canada’s Impact Assessment Act. It was thanks to Health Canada that we were funded to do this research.
This webinar presented findings from a report by the same name. You can access this report here.
Please note, due to a technical issue, this recording does not include the first few minutes of the webinar. The recording is missing Kathleen Buset’s introduction, Manager of the Healthy Environments and Consumer Safety unit of Health Canada, and the following land acknowledgment:
“I’d like to begin with a land acknowledgement as a small step toward reconciliation by paying respect to the traditional guardians of the land and remembering the impacts of colonization on Indigenous peoples. I will start and encourage you to use the Chat function to write the Indigenous name of where you live. I live in the Ottawa area, part of the Algonquin Anishinaabe traditional territory, of 48 million acres. I’ve been learning about this vast Nation. For example, it was divided into 2 with Colonization, using the Ottawa river to create Upper and Lower Canada, now Ontario and Quebec. A treaty was never signed with the Algonquin peoples for the use of this land, so it remains unceded and contested territory.” – Jane Stinson, CRIAW-ICREF Research Associate
