Ongoing Activities

As part of our mission, CWEC/CFEC organizes professional development sessions and a luncheon at the annual CEA meetings.

Every two years, alternating, we either conduct a survey and compile a report on the gender composition of faculty and students in academic economics departments in Canada or award the Young Researcher Award or Service Award. Follow the links in the menu bar on the right for more information.

We also

  • maintain a web page for publication of news of activities, opportunities (including job opportunities) and resources of interest to women economists.
  • advise and offer recommendations to the CEA on matters relating to the status of women in economics in Canada.
  • continuously consider and explore new ways to facilitate and promote the goal of gender equity in the Canadian economics profession.
  • pursue and maintain active connections to sister organizations within Canada and internationally.
