Introduction to GBA+


Welcome to Introduction to Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+).

Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+) is an analytical process used to assess how diverse groups of women, men and non-binary people may experience policies, programs and initiatives. The “plus” in GBA+ acknowledges that GBA+ goes beyond biological (sex) and socio-cultural (gender) differences. We all have multiple identity factors that intersect to make us who we are; GBA+ also considers many other identity factors, such as race, ethnicity, religion, age, and mental or physical disability.

Think big! Think big! The identity factors noted above are not an exhaustive list but represent only those listed explicitly in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. There are numerous other identity factors that can and should be considered.
