It’s about equity. Period. 

Help Us Tackle Period Poverty 

In Canada, menstruation is one of the top two reasons why people who menstruate miss work. The inability to access period products is a contributing factor.  

United Way of the Alberta Capital Region’s Period Promise is dedicated to providing access to free menstrual products as a step toward creating menstrual equity. 

But we can’t do it alone.  

By making a Period Promise, you are committed to providing free menstrual products in a dignified way to employees, members, guests, clients, and the public at your organization.

Why Make a Period Promise? 

Did you know: In 2019, about 34 percent of people in Canada who menstruate had to “often” or “occasionally” make budget sacrifices to afford menstrual products?  

Monthly menstruation products are a necessity, but for vulnerable people, they can be hard to come by. Not being able to access these basic needs can limit a person’s ability to work and provide for themselves. It also impacts their dignity, health, and well-being. 

 It’s about access. Period.  

By taking the pledge, your organization can: 

  • Strengthen your profile as an active community leader who champions equity 
  • Contribute to meaningful change and generate tangible solutions 
  • Help build healthy communities where you live and work 
  • Increase your customers’ awareness about this issue in our community 
  • Drive foot traffic to your business by encouraging people to come in to donate
