THE B.C. CEDAW GROUP IS A COALITION of women’s non-governmental and non-profit British Columbia organizations that are committed to advancing the equality interests of women and girls.
THE B.C. CEDAW GROUP MADE SUBMISSIONS to the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women at the time of its reviews of Canada in 2003 and 2008.
THE B.C. CEDAW GROUP ALSO MADE SUBMISSIONS to the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in 2006, and participated in the preparation of the Canadian non-governmental report for the United Nations Human Rights Council’s Universal Peri-
odic Review of Canada in 2009.
THE GOAL OF THE COALITION is to ensure that governments in British Columbia comply with their human rights obligations to women.
