The Progressive Conservative government abolished the Advisory Council on the Status of Women in 2011 and replaced it last year with the Voices of New Brunswick Women Consensus-Building Forum.
The advisory council received about $400,000 annually in funding, not including in-kind support.
The group that replaced it receives about $200,000 annually, but most of that is in-kind support such as office space.
Gallant says a Liberal government would restore the $400,000 in core funding and may provide in-kind support.
He says in order to make progress on women's equality, it's important to have the funding needed for research.
