Did you know Canada ranks 63rd in the world for women’s representation in national parliaments?
For democracy to be genuine, all voices must be meaningfully included in decision-making. It’s time to Balance the Power.
Politicians and political leaders:
Sign the pledge now!
Parliamentarians and political parties must do what leaders in 60+ other countries have done: take concrete steps to ensure that women and equity-deserving communities are effectively and equitably represented within Canadian politics.
Let’s demand political leaders take the first step by committing to making tangible change.
Why it’s time to Balance the Power
Research makes it clear: elected bodies that meaningfully represent the rich diversity of their constituents deliver better outcomes for everyone. When women and equity-deserving communities are better represented in decision-making, equality advances on all fronts: research is more reliable, social outcomes improve, and economies are more stable.
An added benefit? Balanced representation increases people’s trust in government.
Take Action: Tell political leaders that this issue matters to you.
