2023 Prince Edward Island Provincial Election
We are keeping track of all the women candidates who put their names on the ballot to provide a simple and accessible resource for Canadians, journalists, and political parties.
PEI Provincial Election 2023
Voters go the polls in PEI on April 3rd, 2023.
In the previous provincial election in 2019, 7 women MLAs were elected in PEI, which was the highest number and percentage that the province had ever elected . In this provincial election, Equal Voice is still advocating for gender parity – that means at least 50% of nominated candidates and at least 50% of elected MLAs being women or gender diverse people. We hope that PEI sends at least 13 women or gender diverse MLAs to the PEI legislature.
We are keeping track of all the women and gender diverse candidates who put their name on the ballot. The goal is to provide a simple and accessible resource for Canadians, journalists, and political parties.
