The Equality of Men and Women

Men and women are treated equally under Canadian law. While Canada is generous and open, barbaric cultural practices tolerant to spousal abuse, female genital mutilation, honour killings, forced marriage, and other forms of gender-based violence are unacceptable. Persons who perpetrate such crimes face severe punishment as per Canada’s criminal laws.
