CWEC/CFEC was founded in 2017 after the dissolution of the Canadian Women Economists Network (CWEN/RFE).


The role of the Canadian Women Economists Committee/Comité des Femmes Économistes Canadiennes is to support and promote the advancement of women in the Canadian economics profession. On behalf of the Canadian Economic Association, it will undertake to

  • ensure appropriate representation of women economists and their interests in professional activities and forums
  • improve women economists’ employment opportunities and monitor their progress
  • provide a forum for raising, discussing and addressing issues of concern to women in the Canadian Economic Association
