City for All Women Initiative (CAWI)
We envision a city where everyone can thrive. Where diverse voices are heard, valued and honoured. Where social equity, inclusion and justice are priorities.
Our grassroots non-profit is led and run by diverse women. To pursue our vision, we work with women, non-binary and gender-non-conforming residents with lived experience of marginalization, as well as partners and City decision makers.

CAWI’s work in Ottawa-Gatineau takes place on the traditional unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabe nation. As uninvited guests on this land, we acknowledge the leadership of Indigenous women from time immemorial and seek to learn and unlearn our own colonial practices as we support just city-building.
