Equal Voice is a national multi-partisan organization whose mandate is to promote the election of more women to every level of government. We are the ONLY organization that brings women together across the country and across the political spectrum to advance women’s representation in elected office.

Through your membership, you are demonstrating your commitment - as a woman or man, a Canadian and political activist/observer– to changing the political landscape as we know it. And to change it for the better.

Research throughout the world demonstrates that when women are well represented in politics, the conversation, the culture and the outcomes change – for good.

The Power Behind EV 

For over a decade, Equal Voice has offered events, programs and initiatives to facilitate women’s access to the political sphere. 

EV’s members have played a pivotal part in the success of these initiatives through supporting their development, spreading the word, donating time/money/resources as well as participating in them. 

Not only are our members committed women and men, they are elected representatives, party members, public policy experts, business professionals, women’s advocates, aspiring candidates, youth leaders, and young women and men along with many others who share the vision of EV.  

EV brings together these wonderfully talented, diverse and interesting individuals through its nine chapters in seven provinces throughout Canada. From coast to coast, EV’s members keep their eye on the political ball, report in on groundbreaking developments, liaise with political parties in their area as well as host key events.

And collectively, they help us change the debate and complexion of governments right across Canada.

EV’s Chapters currently include: British Columbia, Alberta North and South, Saskatchewan, Ontario (Toronto and Ottawa), New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador – with chapters in Manitoba and the north currently in development.
