West Coast LEAF 2017 Equality Breakfast


Accurate Realtime Inc was honoured to provide CART captioning for West Coast LEAF’s 2017 Equality Breakfast, held at the Fairmont Hotel in Vancouver on March 10, 2017 in celebration of International Women’s Day.

A Fun Event in Support of Women’s Equality!

An annual event sponsored by many local businesses and organizations, this was the 30th year West Coast LEAF had held the event, with friends, supporters and allies of the group coming together to raise much-needed funds to support their work for women’s equality. On this particular day, the group also commemorated 106 years of International Women’s Day.

Emcee for the event was Gloria Macarenko, host of “Our Vancouver”, a current affairs television show.

West Coast LEAF was honoured to have Dr. Cindy Blackstock as the keynote speaker for the breakfast. Dr. Blackstock is the Executive Director of the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada and is a professor at McGill University’s School of Social Work.

The event also featured a silent auction.


Who is West Coast LEAF?

Founded in 1985, West Coast LEAF envisions a society in which women are full participants in all social, economic, and political activities. The organization’s work is aimed at substantive equality, recognizing and celebrating our differences. Rather than treating everyone the same, substantive equality ensures that historically disadvantaged people can actively participate in society and access justice. They strive to ensure that the law upholds the equality principles in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which advances the rights of all marginalized groups. To learn more about the group and how you can get involved, please check out their website.
