Good morning,

The 63rd Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW) will take place in New York City from March 11 to March 22, 2019. As preparations get underway both in Canada and abroad for the meeting, we would appreciate your assistance in the nomination of candidates from women’s and other civil society organizations (CSOs) to serve as members of the official Canadian delegation.

Status of Women Canada has a long-standing commitment to increasing the participation of women’s and other civil society organizations in the international policy process, as well as assisting groups in building on their knowledge and understanding of the structures and operational processes of the United Nations and other multilateral organizations. Since the Fourth World Conference of Women in 1995, civil society organization representatives have been invited to serve on Canadian delegations to international meetings, including the UNCSW and numerous other ministerial meetings on women.

The priority theme of the UNCSW in 2019 is social protection systems, access to public services, and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. The Commission will also evaluate progress in the implementation of the agreed conclusions from its 60th session on the theme of women’s empowerment and the link to sustainable development.

For more information on the nomination process, including the nomination form and criteria for selection, please visit our website . We will be accepting nominations up until October 26, 2018, at 5:00 p.m. EDT.

Please feel free to contact officials at Status of Women Canada (UNCSW-CCFNU@swc-cfc.gc.ca), should you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,
The UNCSW Team, Status of Women Canada
