The Time To Plan Your Victory Is Now
Ontario is the most diverse province in Canada yet municipal councils are primarily white and male. We want to change that. MunicipalCampaignSchool.ca is a volunteer-led initiative to encourage women and members of other equity-seeking groups to run for office.
March 2022 Update | We are excited to share that MunicipalCampaignSchool.ca is officially open! We have posted our first videos designed to help you run and win in the municipal elections this fall. You can see the videos here and at our YouTube page.
Each video has an interview with a guest who has experience in political campaigning. These first video’s cover campaign planning 101, debate prep and insights about serving as a female counsellor in local politics. Additional videos will be posted throughout March as they are completed. Future conversations will cover messaging (including the power of framing), raising money and financial reporting, door knocking and how to follow the formal nomination process run by each local municipality.
Thank you to the over 160 registrants who signed up for the Are You Election Curious? session in November 2021. It was an engaging conversation with past and current candidates and covered some big questions about the joys and challenges of running for elected office. MC Lindsay Wilson and the amazing Marva Wisdom facilitated a great conversation among the experienced panellists. Click here to read more about the experiences and leadership of the panellists.
