Toward Parity

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) is partnering with local government associations and women’s organizations to develop an action plan to address barriers to women’s participation in local government – the Toward Parity initiative.

How can BC local governments get involved? UBCM is encouraging all local elected officials to join us in the Toward Parity webinar on Tuesday March 5 from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm. Webinar participants will learn about the Toward Parity project; be asked to prioritize key barriers for women; identify actions or initiatives to address barriers; and recommend tools and resources to support proposed initiatives. Further information on the webinar registration will be forthcoming.

UBCM First VP and Sooke Mayor Maja Tait will co-host the webinar with representatives from FCM’s Toward Parity Initiative. Join in the conversation and share your thoughts on how we can remove the barriers and develop a work plan to encourage and support women in local politics.

For further information please contact Marie Crawford at the UBCM office.
