We work to advance education and provide leadership training for women and gender diverse people to increase their participation at all levels of Canadian politics. By leading and supporting initiatives we will equip women and gender diverse people with the skills and tools they need to successfully run for office.

 

The Equal Voice Foundation acknowledges that our offices are located on the unceded, unsurrendered Territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin Nation. Their traditions and protocols continue to nurture this Territory. Please read more here.
