Ontario Municipal Elections Are in 2022
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 and support members of underrepresented communities, including women, Indigenous, Black, racialized and youth members of our community, to run for office.
We will be offering virtual and in-person sessions to support leaders who are both election curious and ready to actively run for office. Whether you’re running for mayor, councillor, warden or school board official, MunicipalCampaignSchool.ca is here to help you plan, run and win your campaign.
Thank you to the over 160 registrants who signed up for the Are You Election Curious? session on Nov 10/21. 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.
