Through this mandate, Respect Canada aims to recognize the specific challenges and needs of women and members of the LGBTQ2+ community in the uniformed professions. To this end, we organize various knowledge-sharing events to illustrate these challenges and encourage collaboration to find solutions.
The Lunch & Meet of the Women’s Outreach, hosted by the Respect Forum, are virtual events that highlights organizations that provide specific services to women in uniform. It provides an opportunity for organizations to present their services to address the specific needs of women in uniformed occupations.

The topic of homelessness among women in uniform is vast and faces a real lack in Canada. Silo work that focuses either on veteran-specific challenges, regardless of gender, or on women’s homelessness, without considering the work experience of women in uniform. Therefore, each expertise is relevant to bring these two aspects together in an innovative approach. In May and June 2021, we organized a symposium aimed at opening up the reflection by presenting different approaches to foster collaboration and knowledge exchange.
* In partnership with The Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness and La Fondation québécoise des Vétérans.

Our Women’s Outreach mandate began with an initial symposium to give voice to women in uniform about their daily lives, their challenges, but also their good ideas and solutions. Bringing together women in uniform as well as women working in aid and support organizations, this symposium was a place of sharing with the objective of developing knowledge and collaboration.
* In partnership with True Patriot Love Foundation
