March 2012 E-bulletin

March 2012

Welcome to this month’s COCo ebulletin!

Happy International Women’s Month! Like this time last year, we’re thinking about how the upcoming provincial budget will affect all of us. See below for some interesting resources on this important issue.

We apologize for the delay in getting this month’s ebulletin to your inboxes – we’re working on a transition to civimail, and hope to have some exciting new features as of next month. Stay tuned!

Finally, today is the last day for nominations for new COCo board members and for our annual $1000 Walk the Social Justice Talk Award. Visit our website ( for more details.

COCo Note

In like a lion, out like…a lion?

by Laila Malik and the COCo team

March is a funny month.

Here in Quebec, many of us desperately sniff the air for any sign of spring’s arrival, and try to stave off winter’s final blows with the warmth of International Women’s Month festivities.

But March is also the month in which provinces announce their projected budgets for the upcoming fiscal year. So as we celebrate the spirit, mobilizations and progress of women, gender equality advocates and allies all over the world, we’re also sneaking a little peek into our pocketbooks, and frankly, feeling a little flustered about what’s to come.

In case you weren’t aware, when we do our taxes this year, those of us who earned more than $14,081 dollars last year will be paying a $200 “Health Contribution.” As we pointed out at this time last year, women are hit hardest by cuts and fees for public services and social programs. According to the Fédération des femmes du Québec (FFQ) , “this “contribution” unfairly penalizes women who, unfortunately, earn only 74% of annual earnings of men and therefore must devote a larger proportion of their incomes to increase rates across the board.”

Last August, the FFQ submitted a brief to the Federal government which outlined three recommendations to promote women’s equality in Canada. The brief and its recommendations break down what a fairer tax system in Canada could look like, and how it would benefit women and entire communities. It also explains how a gender-responsive budget can be used to address an enduring systemic bias against women in Canada.

Unfortunately, the buck doesn’t stop with the health tax. It turns out that the impending higher education tuition hikes that we’ve all been hearing so much about will also affect women disproportionately. Concordia University’s Simone de Beauvoir Institute has produced a Statement on Tuition Fees in Quebec and their Impact on Women. Using recent statistics, the statement unravels exactly how the tuition hikes will affect women disproportionately – whether it’s a matter of debt repayment in a continuing context of pay inequity, or access to higher education for the children of single mothers – who need to allocate 8% more of their income than two-parent families to ensure that their children can obtain an undergraduate degree.

For a broader discussion on the negative impact of tuition hikes on post-secondary access and participation IRIS-Recherche has produced this excellent article , which the Progressive Economics Forum has summarized in English here.

For students (and others!) looking for some background information on what a student strike is and how it can be used as an effective tactic to stop the increases, have produced this informative flyer.

Finally, thiseasy-to-read flyer by Project Genesis explains how the health tax will have an unfair impact, using plain language and accessible visuals.

As award-winning Canadian economist Armine Yalnizyan has pointed out, these types of measures are contributing to an alarming growing income gap across Canada. As we lionize our victories this International Women’s Month, we may want to consider her words:

Everyone has a stake in fixing this. And the fix has no political colour. It is about … where we’re heading as an economy, a society, a democracy.

Held at: University of Ottawa , Ottawa , Canada
July 16-20, 2012
The new Gender Training Workshop seeks to provide workshop participants with a solid understanding & skills in core concepts, gender analysis frameworks and gender strategies that can improve the effectiveness of your organization’s programmes and projects in working with women and men, boys and girls. The workshop will move you beyond the theory to apply in practical and useful ways gender analysis and gender sensitive strategies to your organization and its programmes to achieve greater social justice. You will learn how to develop interventions based on a differential needs, priorities and issues so that your intervention reinforces positive change for both women and men, boys and girls rather than reinforce inequalities. This workshop also involves field work in the Ottawa area.

Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation with 2 day Community Practicum
Held at: University of Ottawa , Ottawa , Canada
July 23-28, 2012
There is increasing evidence showing that evaluation practices that are participatory and inclusive as possible lead to recommendations that have a better probability of being implemented and adopted. Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation (PM&E) involves a different approach to project monitoring and evaluation by involving local people, project stakeholders, and development agencies deciding together about how to measure results and what actions should follow once this information has been collected and analyzed. This popular and intensive six-day experiential workshop is practically focused with daily excursions into the community and a three-day community assignment with a community based organization. Topics covered at the workshop include Origins of PM&E, Skills and Attributes of a PM&E facilitator, Learning PM&E tools, Designing a monitoring and evaluation framework, Quantitative and Qualitative Indicators, Using Mixed-methods, How to triangulate your findings, Building Action Plans and much more. A three day community practicum with an Ottawa non-profit organization will enable you to actually practice the tools learned in the workshop in a real life setting.

More information is available at our website at or Register Online.


All workshops organized by Mosaic are sensitive to issues of gender, ethnicity, race, and class and how these can influence outcomes as well as, how we see the world if they are absent from our assumptions, direct participation, our analysis and conclusions.

Discounts available for groups of three or more workshop participants from the same organization.

7. WORKSHOP: Lively Meetings for Not-for-profit Organizations: from planning to follow-up

Friday, March 9 2012

For those of us familiar with the challenges of running successful meetings- from sleepy participants, to getting off-track, to running out of time without having gotten anywhere concrete – it’s nice to be reminded that lively and effective meetings are not so hard to achieve!

This full-day workshop will focus on the essentials for planning and running great meetings – essentials that can have a big impact, but are often forgotten. The day will be spent moving back and forth between sharing tools, exploring ideas, and trying out what we’re learning – particularly in terms of facilitation. Each participant will leave this workshop with some specific actions they can apply in their own organizational context, for a better meeting experience.

Sliding scale rates from $80 – $160 including refreshments.
