The National Capital Region (NCR) chapter of Equal Voice was established in September 2004. The two principal purposes of this chapter are to:
- Host and organise public events to increase awareness about the significant under-representation of women in the federal Canadian political sphere;
- to encourage political parties and grassroots organisations to nominate and elect more women for all levels of political office.
Equal Voice NCR works to influence each major political party to ensure that they make a credible effort to promote the participation of women in politics, and to help women secure nominations and win elections.
