3. Project Purpose, Description and Scope

3.1 Project Purpose

CanWaCH is renewing its approach to public engagement in response to the tremendous shifts that have taken place in digital spaces throughout the pandemic era. As social media channels and other digital sources have become crowded with information – and misinformation – Canadians have become inundated with content, increasingly digitally-weary and often cynical about the information they consume. It is amid this environment, that CanWaCH understands there is a need to earn trust, awareness and understanding among Canadian audiences by sharing concise, informative and compelling video content that places no onerous expectations on the viewer yet conveys the importance and impact of Canadian projects and programming that works to advance the health and rights of women, children and adolescents globally.

3.2 Project Description and Scope:

Specifically, CanWaCH is seeking a provider to deliver:

  1. Ten (10) public education videos:
    • Approximately 30 seconds in length (or a length recommended by the successful bidder for optimal viewing/exposure);
    • 5 in English and 5 in French: some of the videos may contain similar, translated content. However, the videos should be tailored to the unique characteristics of Anglophone and Francophone audiences rather than identical content that has simply been translated.
    • Customized/optimized as required for best performance on Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube and TikTok.
    • Accompanied by advice from the vendor on how to maximize exposure on each platform, including audience targeting, organic and paid promotion, etc. (For additional context, CanWaCH does not have a presence on TikTok but will leverage members, partners and potential influences to share our content on that platform.)

CanWaCH will work with the vendor to supply content where available to support the creation of the videos, including key data points, photos, videos and more.

  1. A set of recommendations and feedback on CanWaCH’s draft public engagement strategy that has been renewed to focus on public education and adapted to the digital ecosystem that has evolved during the pandemic era. This draft document of approximately 10 pages includes a summary and analysis of CanWaCH’s proposed approach to public education and engagement and target audiences for the forthcoming 1-2 years and will be provided upon contract signing.
