Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Tina Beaudry-Mellor

Political Scientist

"I want our daughters & sons to be so used to seeing women in public leadership roles that it is no longer "exceptional.""

Catherine McKenna

Executive Director, Banff Forum

"Equal Voice is critical because I can't wait 390 years for the gender gap in Canada - in terms of women's political representation - to be closed!"

Raylene Lang-Dion

National Chair, Equal Voice

"Canadians' support for electing more women from coast-to-coast-to-coast is so encouraging! Join EV so that we can further empower Canadian women to have their voices where it counts - at the political decision making table. Let's make this happen and ...now!"

Hon. Jean Augustine, PC, CM

Fairness Commissioner

"Women’s voices need to be represented among all levels of government to ensure a civil and caring society. Our political structures require the full and active participation of women to truly reflect the concerns and issues of all Canadians."

Amanda Nielsen

President, Athabasca University Graduate Students' Association

"I am proud to call myself an Equal Voice Champion because, with the Canadian Parliament consisting of just 25% elected women and the Alberta Legislature consisting of just 26% elected women, our organization still needs to exist. Until we work ourselves out of a job by seeing more elected woman to all levels of Canadian government, Equal Voice matters."

Dr. Hedy Fry, MP

Member of Parliament for Vancouver Centre

"We need more women at all levels of government in order to make better and more balanced public policy decisions. Women still face multiple barriers to running for elected office, and it is important that elected men and women encourage, mentor, and support them."

Sarah Onyango

Civic Engagement Advocate

"If we - as women - want to 'be the change' we want to see in our communities and country, we must drive that change by making sure we help get more women - from diverse backgrounds - to the decision-making table at all levels of government. Gender balance in our legislatures and on our city councils is key to the very legitimacy of our democracy. I want to be a part of the change by being an EV Champion. I invite you to join this powerful movement!"

Carolyn Chisholm

Senior Advisor, Natural Resources & Environment, Global Public Affairs

"It's high time that I leaned in. Equal Voice is a great organization that I am pleased to support as a way to give back. I believe passionately that women leaders are key to strengthening our democracy and our nation."

Clare Beckton

Executive Director, Centre for Women in Politics and Public Leadership

"Women are over 50% of our population and their participation is vital to the social and economic fabric of our nation. When women are proportionally represented in our institutions of democracy, all the richness of different perspectives are part of decision- making in our country, resulting in better policies,and programs. Now is the time to act and make equitable representation a reality. "

Lynne Hamilton

National Chair, Equal Voice

"Electing more women is just common sense."
