This campaign school has already taken place.

Join the National Online Campaign School from wherever you are in Canada!

The National Online Campaign School is designed to equip women with the skills, knowledge, and resources they need to run for political office in Canada. The school consists of 4 online sessions including a mix of group exercises, guest speakers, and networking opportunities. Each course is approximately two hours for a total of 8 hours of learning over 4 weeks. Participants will receive a comprehensive workbook to guide them through the courses.


  • Graduates join the Equal Voice Alumni network;
  • Gain knowledge on how to get nominated, build your team, and run a campaign;
  • New connections across party lines and access to advice from elected officials;
  • Improved leadership, management, and communication skills;

“The Equal Voice Campaign School is a great launchpad for women thinking about running for office! They cover a huge breadth of topics and engage with a fantastic group of speakers including those who have successfully run for office. Learning about the path other women have taken, and their reasons for entering politics, was an invaluable experience.” – 2020 Participant

We are delighted that thanks to the generosity of donors to the Equal Voice Foundation we are able to offer this campaign training at no charge to participants. To continue to offer the course for free, we invite you to make a donation to the Equal Voice Foundation.

However, unfortunately in the past we have had participants sign up and not attend sessions.  As we keep the group small for optimal learning, and have a waitlist, people who register and don’t attend are denying a spot to someone on the waitlist.  Therefore, it is important to make sure you are committed to the sessions before you decide to sign up.

**Due to capacity limits, we will be closing applications after a certain number of registrations. If you wish to participate in a future Campaign School, please RSVP or email [email protected] to be added to the waitlist and someone will contact you should more spots become available.**
