Women in Local Government
A Program for Women
Toward Parity in Municipal Politics is dedicated to developing a pan-Canadian strategy to address systemic barriers to women's participation in municipal government. This program brings together Canada's municipal sector with women's organizations at the national, regional and local level, to co-create a strategy dedicated to overcoming the barriers women face when running for office.
Take a look at FCM's scholarships to support women interested in municipal politics and our award that recognizes retired female municipal elected officials.
