WIFT Canada Coalition is a group of autonomous WIFT chapters across Canada - WIFT Atlantic, FCTMN Quebec, WIFT Toronto, WIFT Alberta and WIFT Vancouver – and Women in View. The Coalition is grateful for the support of the Canada Media Fund.

The Women in Film and Television Canada Coalition (WIFT Canada Coalition) partnered with Reel Families for Change Canada, with support from the Canada Media Fund, on an industry-wide survey on issues and realities faced by women, and caregivers, in our screen-based industries who are experiencing increased pressure with childcare and family care requirements exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The WIFT Canada Coalition Family Care Project study is slated for release June 22.
