Oxfam Canada’s new guide to gender-based analysis plus in impact assessment in Canada is a road map to support activists and community members of all genders and identities in navigating the federal impact assessment process. It goes beyond outlining the process: it provides an overview of advocacy ideas and approaches to help ensure the voices of activists and community members, especially those most marginalized because of systemic oppression, are heard and considered in the impact assessment process.

This guide is for land defenders, whistleblowers, concerned citizens, frontline service providers – it is for anyone who wants but isn’t quite sure how to get involved in the federal impact assessment process. It provides insight on how to ensure gender and other identity factors, including race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability and age, are centred in impact assessments so that everyone can benefit equitably from resource extraction and infrastructure projects, while harms are eliminated, reduced and addressed, instead of being borne by the most marginalized.
