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!"

Lesia Babiak

Executive Director, Government Affairs, Johnson & Johnson

"Johnson & Johnson, Family of Companies in Canada has been a sponsor of Equal Voice since 2005. I am proud of Johnson & Johnson's involvement in helping to encourage more Canadian women to seek public office. But as in public life, so too must corporate Canada remove barriers for women keen to serve boards and lead in senior executive positions. Equal Voice is helping to change the face of Canadian politics, but also stimulating important discussion in corporate Canada. I am excited, personally and professionally, to be a part of the EV team."

Alison Loat

Co-founder, Samara

"A Parliament that better reflects the Canadian population is an important step toward making the institution more relevant to its citizens."

Anita Vandenbeld

International Consultant, Inclusive political participation and parliamentary development

"When a woman runs for office, she learns certain lessons. Why should every woman learn them from scratch? Together we can build on each others' experiences and get much further ahead"

Laura Ross, MLA

Regina Qu'Appelle Valley, Saskatchewan

"Having capable, qualified women elected to public office is important in the development of well balanced policies."

Allison Brewer

Former Leader, New Brunswick NDP

"Canadian women don't speak with one voice which is why EV is so valuable in uniting us all in our efforts to get involved, get connected and get elected at every political level throughout this country."

Rt. Hon. Kim Campbell

Canada's 19th Prime Minister

"It makes a difference and Canada is still lagging in this important measure of democracy."

Jennifer Mowbray

EVNCR Co-chair

"Everyone’s life is affected by politics and so everyone should be part of the process. Equal Voice is about ensuring women’s voices and ideas are heard."

Megan Leslie, MP

Member of Parliament, Halifax

"Working together we can reduce barriers for women in all aspects of politics from political research, writing and organizing, to running for elected office. Having legislatures and decision-making bodies that truly reflect gender balance in this country will create a better Canada for all Canadians – let’s get going!"

Dr. Hedy Fry, MP

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."
