Administrative history

The Women's Directorate was established in 1988. It functioned as the secretariat of the provincial government's Interdepartmental Committee on the Status of Women (renamed the Interdepartmental Committee on Women's Issues in 1992). The directorate was created to deliver services which neither the Interdepartmental Committee nor the Advisory Council on the Status of Women provided. The directorate acted as a coordinating unit to advise and assist government departments in their delivery of programs and services affecting women, to improve the condition of women in the public service, and to maintain a record of the government's accomplishments on behalf of women. The directorate reported to the chair of the Interdepartmental Committee on the Status of Women. In August 1996, the Women's Directorate was merged into the Advisory Council on the Status of Women.
