National Action Committee on the Status of Women (NAC)

Text Size: Normal / Medium / Large
Organization Type: 
NGO - Non Government Organization

National Action Committee on the Status of Women is an action-oriented organization made up of over 700 groups from all over Canada. In 1971 the NAC started with 30 groups that have expanded to become the largest umbrella organization of women's groups in Canada. Committed to equality and social justice for all women, it focuses mainly on advocating for changes that will improve the STATUS OF WOMEN, such as those in child care, violence against women, poverty and minority rights. In addition to supporting provincial and local issues, the NAC participates in conferences and actions to promote international solidarity between women and advocates for women's equality rights globally.
Once funded almost 100% by the federal government, NAC now raises all of its operating funds through membership fees, donations, project grants and special events. Priorities for each year are set at the annual general meeting. The executive is elected from the membership and, with the exception of the president, comprises voluntary positions.
