Toward Parity in Municipal Politics is an initiative dedicated to developing a pan-Canadian strategy to level the playing field for women and men running for municipal office.

FCM will work with provincial and territorial municipal associations, Equal Voice, the Canadian Women Foundation as well as other organizations at the national, regional and local levels. Consultations and pilot projects throughout the country will help create a national approach to addressing barriers to women's participation in the political life of their community.

This three-year initiative (2018-2021) is funded by Status of Women Canada.
