CICan President Denise Amyot has responded to the launch of Canada’s new Feminist International Assistance Policy, praising the initiative as one that aligns with CICan’s own priorities. “Having always worked to make post-secondary education accessible to all, both at home and abroad, we were thrilled to see the minister announce a new Feminist International Assistance Policy that perfectly aligns with our own priorities,” stated Amyot, who pointed to Canadian institutions’ long history of working to support underrepresented groups, such as women. “We were especially pleased to see renewed commitments in support of technical and vocational training for women, improving their education outcomes and increasing their participation in economic decision-making.” CICan
