Ontario Ministry of Labour: Closing the Gender Wage Gap Public town halls
and/or written submissions
Deadline Written Responses January 15, 2016
Toronto Town Hall November 16, 2015

The Gender Wage Gap Strategy Steering Committee is consulting Ontarians on
how to close the wage gap between men and women. They will examine how
women are affected by the gender wage gap, at work, in their family, and in
their community. They will assess how government, business, labour, other
organizations, and individual leaders can work together to resolve issues
that may cause the wage gap. The Gender Wage Gap Strategy Steering
Committee has created two consultation papers. One is for organizations,
and one is for individuals. Each has information about the gender wage gap,
as well as the questions the Steering Committee hopes will be answered.
Public˜town hallsessions will be held across the province and all are
invited to attend and/or contribute via online submissions.

For details and a schedule of town hall sessions:

Written responses to the Consultation Papers will be accepted until January
15, 2016. They can be sent by:

University of Victoria

12:00 - 2:00 pm
November 19, 2015,


First Nations House
563 Spadina Ave., 3rd Floor,
University of Toronto
Toronto, ON

Amidst ongoing, contemporary colonialism and new threats to Indigenous
nations, we will discuss everyday acts of resurgent and the
restoration of land-based practices within Indigenous communities
today. By drawing on several comparative examples of resurgence from
Cherokees in Kituwah, Lekwungen protection of camas (in Victoria, BC),
and Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) revitalization of kalo, we will
examine strategies for re-asserting self-determining authority of
Indigenous nations and new pathways for representing themselves on
their own terms.

Co-presented by:
Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, Indigenous Education
Network, First Nations House, Centre for Aboriginal Initiatives and
Aboriginal Studies Student Union
