They Govern – Become a City Councilor for the Day

Equal Voice National Capital Region (EVNCR) invites young women, girls, gender-diverse and gender non-binary youth in Ottawa to become City Councilors for the day for the second year through our program, They Govern. If you, or someone you know, is a high school student interested in city issues, or has a passion for politics and civic engagement, this program is a great opportunity.

The goal of They Govern is to provide participants with hands-on experience in municipal politics. Participants will get the chance to debate issues important to our city during a mock city council meeting and will also hear from municipal leaders about their own experiences.

The program will take place in-person at Ottawa City Hall on Saturday, June 4th, 2022 beginning at 2 p.m.

Those interested must fill out an application in order to participate. The link for the application is:
