We keep track of all the women and gender diverse candidates who put their name on the ballot to provide a simple and accessible resource for Canadians, journalists, and political parties.
The Equal Voice Election Tracker started with the 44th Canadian Federal Election in 2021. Equal Voice advocated for gender parity – that means at least 40% of nominated candidates and at least 40% of elected MPs being women or gender diverse people. Our aim is at least 136 women or gender diverse MPs.
Now we are tracking provincial elections and helping to provide those interested in being politically involved the resources to get started in your province.
Practical tools for women of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life interested in running for public office.
