Supplementary Information Tables for the 2022–23 Departmental Plan: Gender-Based Analysis Plus (GBA+)

Institutional GBA Plus Capacity
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will continue to integrate Gender-Based Analysis Plus (GBA Plus) into work-related areas where the Government of Canada has established GBA Plus requirements. 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 Plus beyond the mandated areas to other activities where its application would be beneficial, such as Return to the Workplace (RTWp), the regulatory framework, Indigenous engagement and communication activities. The decision to undertake a GBA Plus assessment on corporate projects is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Highlights of GBA Plus Results Reporting Capacity by Program
All Programs The CNSC is committed to ensuring that its "work from home" and RTWp strategy is based on principles of equity and supported by evidence. To support this objective, a GBA Plus assessment was undertaken to evaluate disproportionate impacts on diverse groups of people and to find ways of mitigating potential barriers. Recommendations to address the findings include developing presentations for management on how to support their employees in seeking accommodations, designing learning sessions for staff on workplace accommodations; and organizing safe space conversations on disabilities and neurodiversity. These recommendations are actively being implemented. In addition, considering the resources provided by the Department for Women and Gender Equality, the CNSC is also developing additional GBA Plus training tools and guidance for staff when having to undertake a GBA Plus on internal policies or programs. The CNSC will also participate in planned GBA Plus Awareness Week activities in 2022-23.
