Federal Election 2021

In the 44th Canadian Federal Election, Equal Voice was advocating for gender parity – that means at least 40% of nominated candidates and at least 40% of elected MPs being women or gender diverse people. Our aim was at least 136 women or gender diverse MPs.

We kept track of all the women and gender diverse candidates who put their names on the ballot. The goal was to provide a simple and accessible resource for Canadians, journalists, and political parties.

Federal Tracking Sheet

This directory will tracked the nominated candidates in the five major political parties as well as any party/candidate that received more than 5% of the vote in the last election in that riding. We included the candidate’s website or campaign platform if the information was available.
