Celebrate HER.

Equal Voice National EVE Awards (Ottawa and Toronto):

Every spring and fall, Equal Voice works with its Toronto and Ottawa chapters to honour two outstanding women with the EVE Award for her outstanding contribution to advancing women in public life.   We were honoured in 2012 to celebrate Premier Alison Redford and Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath.

You can watch video footage from Equal Voice’s EVE Award Toronto recipients including former Deputy Prime Minister Anne McLellan, The Rt. Hon. Kim Campbell, former Ontario Minister Isabel Bassett.  For an overview of all of EV’s Award recipients, click here.

International Insights Panel:

In collaboration with our Ottawa chapter, Equal Voice hosts its annual International Insights panel to hear more about women’s participation in politics around the globe.  These panels create a forum where ambassadors, diplomats, elected officials and EV members and supporters can learn about the success stories and challenges women are experiencing around the world. 

Equal Voice Toronto’s Ontario Legislature Welcome Back Event:

Equal Voice Toronto regularly welcome women MLAs back to the House after each provincial election.

"“Deep change in our political system is needed. I believe it will only be achieved when our elected officials truly represent our citizenship; including ensuring a balanced gender perspective. More women running = more women winning.”"

"It's really a no-brainer! Better representation means more robust input at decision-making tables. That means better policy outcomes. That's good for Canada."

Joan Weinman

Principal, The Melbourne Group

"Hillary Clinton recently said that 'the rights of women and girls is the unfinished business of the 21st century.' I became a national board member for Equal Voice because I would like to help 'finish the business' of attaining greater gender balance in all levels of government in this country. I not only believe we can ... I believe we must."

Equal Voice Alberta North Chair

""Let's get to 50 percent.""

"Encouraging women of my generation to become leaders in their community has never been so critical. "

Elizabeth May, MP

Saanich-Gulf Islands, Leader, Green Party of Canada

"Why should you join Equal Voice? Do you want your voice to be equal or do you want your voice to be 24% of the male voices that dominate Canada's Parliament? Do you want Canada's Parliament to rank 45th out of 189 countries in terms of representation of women? You should join Equal Voice because you want to be represented, and you are no longer willing to be embarrassed by this country's poor record. Women are needed in Parliament, and only you can get us there. "

Denise Siele

Managing Partner, SEMgroup

"Equal Voice gets it and Canadians get it. Strengthened participation means a strengthened Canada."

Jackie DaSilva

Communications Co-Chair, EV Toronto

"I can only be what I can see: we need a critical mass of women in politics to finally turn the tide on the centuries-old perception of politics as an 'old boys club', into a world that is abundant with women's voices."
