Gender-based analysis plus
|Governance structures|| |
In April 2017, the RCMP appointed a new Director of gender-based analysis plus (GBA+) to oversee GBA+ implementation across the Force. This position reports to a new senior executive position established to provide greater coordination and oversight for gender, diversity, and inclusion initiatives across the RCMP. The GBA+ Champion is a full member of the RCMP's Senior Executive Committee, which ensures GBA+ considerations are integrated within departmental deliberations and decision-making processes.
In April 2018, two additional full-time equivalents (FTEs) were appointed to support the coordination and implementation of GBA+ activities within the RCMP, in addition to the conduct of strategic GBA+ projects. GBA+ implementation will continue into 2019-20, including the appointment of an additional FTE to further support GBA+ and RCMP modernization efforts.
GBA+ awareness sessions will continue to be delivered across all major RCMP business lines and with senior executive teams in the divisions. Over 5,000 RCMP employees have completed the Department of Women and Gender Equality's "Introduction to GBA+" online course, which has also been made mandatory for all applicants to the RCMP's Officer Candidate Program.
Dedicated GBA+ resources will continue to provide centralized advice and support on the application of GBA+ across the RCMP, including reporting on GBA+ initiatives to the RCMP Senior Executive Committee. The responsibility centre supports and monitors GBA+ initiatives, serves as the primary contact point for all matters related to GBA+ for the Department of Women and Gender Equality, central agencies and broader Government of Canada GBA+ Networks, and works with subject matter experts to complete GBA+ for Memoranda to Cabinet, Treasury Board submissions, budget proposals, business cases, policies and procedures, and the conduct of strategic GBA+ projects.
The RCMP remains a member of the Federal GBA+ Interdepartmental Committee (Defence and Security cluster). Ongoing participation in this committee ensures the Department remains informed of GBA+ developments within the Government's law enforcement and security sector, and helps to build and maintain networks with like-minded departments and agencies. The RCMP will continue to actively participate in this group to facilitate the sharing of best practices and strategies, and to identify opportunities for collaboration on specific objectives and projects. The RCMP will also continue to participate in other intra- and inter-departmental forums related to departmental and government-wide GBA+, gender, diversity, and inclusion priorities and objectives.
