Our 2021 – 2022 Annual Report and AGM6/21/2022
Our 2021-2022 annual report is now available to the public.
This past year was, once again, marked by uncertainty and change – which was in turn, met with ingenuity, care, an opportunities for creative responses to longstanding systemic issues. A big and heartfelt thank you to our national office team for their determined advocacy, constant collaboration, and steadfast belief that another world is possible.
This report includes an overview of the projects, initiatives, and core work that CAEFS has undertaken in the past fiscal year, often in collaboration with our member societies. Critically, this report also includes our annual summary of the status of conditions of confinement in federal prisons designated for women in Canada.
Our annual report was presented to our membership this past Saturday, June 18th, 2022, at our annual general meeting (AGM). As has become the custom over the past three years, our AGM was divided between formal business and a keynote speaker. This year, we were thrilled to welcome Robyn Maynard to speak about her new book “Rehearsals for Living”, co-authored with Leanne Betasamosake Simpson.
The formal part of our agenda served to bring our organizational positions and practices in better alignment with our newly passed statement of purpose and vision.
We are hopeful that the year ahead will continue to move us all towards justice, joy, and a world without prisons with strong and well-resourced communities for everyone.
