2019–20 Departmental Results Report Supplementary Information: Gender-based analysis plus (GBA+)

Institutional GBA+ capacity

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will integrate gender-based analysis (GBA+) into its work related to areas where the Government of Canada has established requirements for GBA+. These areas are:

  • the development, implementation and review of regulations
  • the conduct of evaluations
  • the development of cabinet proposals (such as Treasury Board submissions and memoranda to Cabinet)

The CNSC may expand the application of GBA+ beyond the mandated areas to other regulatory activities where the application of GBA+ would be beneficial, such as return to the workplace (RTWp), the regulatory framework, Indigenous engagement and communication activities.

Highlights of GBA+ results

All Programs

In 2019–20 the CNSC continued to make progress against the framework to support GBA+ established by Women and Gender Equality. The organization has established a governance model, responsibility centre and drafted a GBA+ policy.

The CNSC is committed to ensuring its RTWp strategy is based on principles of equity and supported by evidence. To support this objective, a GBA+ assessment is being undertaken to determine if there are disproportionate impacts of the return to the workplace on diverse groups of people and, should there be, to find ways of mitigating any barriers.
