In response to recommendations made by the Gender Equity review committee and approved by the Spiritual & Denominational Affairs Board in 2023, and in keeping with current trends in Corps Mission, we are happy to announce that Women’s Ministry will become part of the Corps Mission Department effective March 1, 2024. Going forward, Women’s Ministry will cease to be its own department in the Canada and Bermuda Territory and will become a part of the corps life team, alongside corps health, children and youth, and music and arts to serve the territory. Commissioner Debbie Graves, Territorial President for Women’s Ministries, will continue to support ministry to and for the women of Canada and Bermuda.


The Gender Equity Committee seeks to shift the culture of The Salvation Army in Canada and Bermuda to be one that fosters gender equity. For this reason, ongoing education and training is essential. Gender equity content and learning has been shared through facilitated workshops based on the Report and recommendations. 

Below is a list outlining some of the gender equity presence in the territory.
