The findings of this report show that Canada is falling behind. Once ranked 7th in the world for closing the gap between women and men, Canada is now ranked 73rd. The decline is no accident. There has been a systematic erosion of the human rights of women and girls in Canada during the period covered by this report and the current UN review: 2004-2009. The changes to Status of Women Canada, the shifts in policy and programming within the federal government, and the government’s response to the economic crisis have been felt by the most vulnerable women and girls in Canada.
