The United Nations defines 30% as the minimal percentage of women required for government to reflect women’s concerns. Women in Canada represent 18% of mayors and 28% of councillors, for an average of 26%. Based on current statistics, Canada would need 1,408 more women in elected office today to reach the 30% target.

This day-long event will have talented individuals teaching communication, marketing, and campaign team-building skills. Participants can expect to learn about the nomination process, rules about fundraising, and how to develop a campaign platform and strategy.

Who should attend?

  • Women thinking of running for school trustee/councillor in the 2018 municipal election
  • Women who may be interested in local government
  • Anyone wanting to support a woman’s campaign
