1. Annual Events for Women

International Women's Day (IWD)

Celebrated every year on March 8th, it provides an opportunity for Saskatchewan citizens to join with the International community to celebrate the achievements of women, to reflect on our current status, and to raise public awareness of women and girls who are leaders and role models in their communities.

Women's History Month

Celebrated each year in October, it is a time when Saskatchewan joins with Canadians to celebrate how women have shaped our history.

International Day of the Girl

Celebrated each year on October 11th to recognize girls as powerful agents of change and as leaders in their communities, in their families, and with their peers.

National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

December 6th marks the anniversary of the deaths of 14 female engineering students killed at Montreal's l'École Polytechnique in 1989. The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women represents an opportunity for Canadians to remember all women and girls who have died as a result of violence, to think about those who currently face violence in their lives, and to consider actions toward eliminating violence against women.

2. Programs and Services

The Status of Women Office works through partnerships rather than client-based programs. The Office adds capacity to government’s policy and decision-making function by:

  • Conducting sex and gender-based analysis;
  • Developing and reporting on equality indicators; and
  • Leading work with government ministries, crown corporations, agencies and others to identify changes that will modify and shape programs and services to respond to the emerging priorities for women and their families.
