64th session focus

The 64th session’s main focus will be on the review and appraisal of the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and the outcomes of the 23rd special session of the General Assembly. The review will include an assessment of current challenges that affect the implementation of the Platform for Action and the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of women and its contribution towards the full realization of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Canada’s national review

Every five years, UN Women conducts a global review on progress towards the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action. In this context, the Government of Canada prepared a National Report on its own implementation progress. For this review, covering the period of 2015 to 2019, progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals was also considered.

The Government of Canada consulted with provincial and territorial governments for input to the national review to highlight what has been achieved in various jurisdictions in advancing gender equality and will continue working together to address challenges and gaps.
