Daughters of the Vote
Equal Voice invited young women, ages 18 to 23, from across the country to apply to be one of 338 dynamic and diverse delegates in a once-in-a-lifetime political leadership program. Applications have closed for our 2019 program, but stay tuned for 2021.
One delegate from every federal riding in Canada will be chosen to represent their community and vision for Canada.
All delegates will attend a national event in Ottawa and take their respective MP’s seat in Parliament during a historic sitting of the House of Commons in April 2019. They will be addressed by every federal party leader, and engage with an array of Ministers, critics and advocates. Following the Ottawa event, all delegates will be eligible for a leadership grant to accelerate advocacy efforts in their local communities.
Equal Voice's objective for our Daughters of the Vote program is to ensure that 338 emerging young women leaders, among others, become familiar with Canada’s political institutions and those women and men serving in them – so that they are equipped and inspired to participate in the formal political sphere and take action in their local communities in the years and decades to come.
Our ultimate goal
Equal Voice's ultimate goal is to ensure women are dynamic and equal participants at every political decision making table in the country.
