Through this 27-month project, Equal Voice will advance women’s leadership and decision-making through systemic change in Canada’s legislatures post Covid-19. Legislatures are places of tradition, but pandemic has led to dramatic innovation and modernization.  


We will work to ensure that Canada’s legislatures emerge from the pandemic as more gender-sensitive institutions. This will alleviate systemic barriers to women’s participation in politics and includes supports like allowing elected officials to participate in a hybrid model where needed, such as for childbirth, illness, family responsibilities, or other exceptional circumstances.
