   OTTAWA — The Liberal government is devoting nearly $860,000 to a project that could end up creating a certification system to let Canadians know how well companies are doing when it comes to gender equality.
   The three-year project led by the UN’s Global Compact Network Canada will involve working with the private sector to develop a plan to get rid of the barriers women face in the workplace, including better policies on sexual harassment and balancing a job with caring for a family.
    Similar to the LEED certification for environmentally-friendly building design, consumers will then be able to identify companies certified as supportive of gender equality.
