About the event

On January 24, join the official launch of Balance the Power!

Canada ranks 61st in the world for women’s representation in national parliaments.

We need to increase diversity and representation of women and equity-deserving communities in our elected bodies NOW.

Politicians have the power to balance the power.

Together, let’s demand they change politics for good.

Who should join the wave?

Do you believe that for democracy to be genuine, all voices must be represented in decision-making?

Do you want our elected bodies to reflect the rich diversity of the people they serve?

If yes, join the wave to Balance the Power!

Balance the Power is an intersectional, engaging campaign calling for greater diversity and representation in our elected bodies.

Elected bodies that reflect our rich diversity deliver better outcomes for everyone, especially equity-deserving communities.

Individuals, organizations, networks – let’s show a collective demand for change!
