Celebrate HER.

Back to Main

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.

Who Is Being Her. Supporting Her. Celebrating Her.

Catherine Fortin Lefaivre

Principal, CFL Communications, 2014 Municipal Candidate, Ottawa

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

Stephanie Kusie, MP

Calgary Midnapore Conservative Party Immediate Past Equal Voice Alberta South Chair

""When I ran as a civic candidate, I was shocked by the number of women at the door who indicated that they did not pay attention to politics. Yet, I consistently hear women voicing concerns about issues of government on social media and out in public. What a difference women could make if they chose to be active in our fundamental democratic processes! I am proud to be involved in empowering women to take this initiative. ""

Nicole Loreto

Vice-President, Communications & Stakeholder Relations, The Royal Ottawa

"We need to bring gender balance to all levels of government. EV is a national organization that can help create that parity"

Hon. Jean Augustine, PC, CM

Ontario 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."

Rosemarie Leclair

Chair & CEO, Ontario Energy Board

"Research shows that there is a direct correlation between a corporation's performance and the number of women in the boardroom and C-suite.  Why wouldn't we want to see those same results in politics and government? By supporting Equal Voice's membership campaign, one day we will."

Dr. Hedy Fry, MP

Vancouver Centre Liberal Party

"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."

Kerry Patterson-Baker

Product and Partner Communications MBNA, a division of TD Bank Group

"Women remain stubbornly under-represented in Canada’s boardrooms and legislatures. I have long supported initiatives that work to remove the obstacles that limit a woman’s ability to take their rightful place as leaders and decision makers. This campaign illustrates the ways in which we can all move this important objective forward: BE her, SUPPORT her, CELEBRATE her. I hope you will help."

Anita Vandenbeld

Member of Parliament for Ottawa West—Nepean

"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"

Rebecca Scott

Regional Director, Extendicare Assist at Extendicare & EV Toronto Co-chair

"I know so many strong, inspiring, intelligent women with innovative ideas. I am a part of Equal Voice because I want to ensure they are encouraged to share their talents with the public to improve our country! "
