Gender-based analysis plus

General information
Institutional GBA Plus Capacity
The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) recognizes the importance of Gender-Based Analysis Plus (GBA Plus) across the Office.

In 2022-23, the OPC will continue implementing its GBA Plus Framework and Action Plan. The OPC will also continue to build its internal capacity, by supporting the GBA Plus Working Group, by providing training to better equip and enable employees to apply GBA Plus to their work, and by continuing to implement a GBA Plus pilot project related to the OPC’s Contributions Program.
Highlights of GBA Plus Results Reporting Capacity by Program
Protection of Privacy rights

It is currently too early for the OPC to develop a comprehensive list of programs that will collect and maintain sufficient information to undertake GBA Plus.

The OPC is conscious of the need for data-driven, evidence-based analysis and is therefore currently exploring ways of incorporating GBA Plus into our work in the most-privacy protective manner possible. This work will not only inform our own GBA Plus practices but will also help the Office to provide recommendations to other federal government departments and agencies on how they can also implement GBA Plus in a manner that respects the privacy rights of Canadians.
