Equal Voice Canada seeking young women for parliament
Are you or do you know a young woman who is an emerging leader?
Equal Voice Canada wants you.
Equal Voice invites young women, ages 18 to 23, from across the country to apply to be one of 338 dynamic and diverse emerging leaders who will be in session in Canada’s Parliament April 2019 with Daughters of the Vote. One participant from every federal riding in Canada will be chosen to represent her community and vision for Canada.
All delegates will 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.
The Daughters of the Vote initiative was named by CTV News as one of “2017’s Most Memorable Moments in the House of Commons”, and earned widespread national and international media attention as 338 young women took their seats in the House of Commons on International Women’s Day to mark 100 years since some women obtained the right to vote.
Equal Voice's objective for our Daughters of the Vote initiative 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 in the years and decades to come.
This is an exciting opportunity for young women in HSA, and your union’s Women’s and Political Action Committees encourage young members to apply.

Deadline for applications is November 22 at midnight, PST.
