Our Desire

Reweaving Support is hosted by Woman Healing for Change Inc and funded by Status of Women Canada WAGE Grant – Women and Gender Equity. It is a 2.5-year province-wide systems change project to engage as many organizations and interested Manitobans as possible in reimagining and reweaving our social safety net.

We will apply GBA+ (intersectional feminism) to assess the social safety net and create a participatory action research (PAR) project in five areas: childcare, CFS, housing security and income security as well as supports to prevent and intervene in gender-based violence and abuse.

Our Quest

The Reweaving Support project aims to take a "be the change we want to see approach" to remake a COVID pandemic and climate-smart social safety net, with social programs that are trauma-informed systems change, evidence-based, anti-oppressive, community empowering, justice and strength-based. The project will do this by building a movement for healthy public policy, collaborative governance and participatory gender-based budgeting.
