Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+)

Gender-based Analysis Plus

With diversity and inclusion among the top priorities across government, the School is proud to offer learning opportunities on Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+), a powerful analytical tool that helps to build these considerations into policies and programs at every stage of development, implementation and delivery.

GBA+ is used to assess how diverse groups of women, men and gender-diverse people may experience policies, programs and initiatives. The "plus" in GBA+ acknowledges that GBA goes beyond biological and socio-cultural differences. We all have multiple identity factors that intersect to make us who we are; GBA+ also considers many other identity factors, like race, ethnicity, religion, age, and mental or physical disability.

The Government of Canada has recently renewed its commitment to GBA+ and aims to strengthen this capacity across departments and organizations. Whatever your level, whatever your field of work, these activities will give you essential tools for serving the diverse needs of Canadians.

Featured Courses

The Canada School of Public Service (CSPS) has just launched a new series of intensive in-person learning products under the banner of "CSPS Premium." The first Premium product the School delivered was a Gender-Based Analysis Plus (GBA+) pilot course in October 2018.

CSPS Premium: GBA+ is an intensive, classroom course limited to a small cohort of 12 to 15 participants, and taught by faculty with specialized knowledge in the area. Contact your HR to see if your department is interested in nominating you for entry into a future cohort.

Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+): Applying Your Knowledge (T731)

Together, Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+) and the Gender Results Framework provide a strong foundation for identifying and removing barriers to gender equality in public policies, programs, services and other government initiatives.

In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to practice applying GBA+ in interactive group exercises and by using the "Demystifying GBA+" job aid (This link will open in a new window.) (Status of Women Canada).
