Fire Service Women Ontario awarded Status of Women Canada funding

Congratulations to Fire Service Women Ontario for receiving federal funding for a 3-year project that aims to increase gender diversity in the fire service.

“We are thankful for the support from the Government of Canada. There is a critical lack of women firefighters in Canada and with this support, we will develop a coordinated strategy to remove the barriers to enable the full participation of women so that firefighters better reflect the makeup of Canadian communities.” (Louise Hine-Schmidt, President, Fire Service Women Ontario)
