Introduction to GBA+

What is Gender-based Analysis Plus?

GBA+ is an intersectional analytical process for examining how various intersecting identity factors impact the effectiveness of government initiatives. It involves examining disaggregated data and research, and considering social, economic, and cultural conditions and norms. Using GBA+ means taking a gender- and diversity-sensitive approach to your work. Considering all intersecting identity factors as part of GBA+ – not only sex and gender – is a Government of Canada commitment. It can be applied no matter what your role and is relevant in every organization’s work. You may be surprised by what you learn!

Remember that now is always the right time to start your GBA+. It works best if you start early, but you can start at any time and at any stage of a work cycle.
