At TVO’s Civics 101, our goal is to teach how Ontario’s government works — to help inform all Ontarians about our electoral system and voting rights, as well as the processes and procedures of government. Through animated explainers, interactives, and coverage of legislative activity at Queen’s Park, we hope to provide a foundation of knowledge that allows you to get involved in the democratic process.
Equal Voice is a national, bilingual, non-profit, multi-partisan organization dedicated to electing more women to all levels of political office in Canada. Equal Voice regards the under-representation of women in Canada’s Parliament, in our provincial/territorial legislatures, and on municipal and band councils, as a fundamental deficit in Canada’s democratic institutions. Founded in 2001, Equal Voice has chapters in British Columbia, Alberta (south and north), Ontario (Toronto and Ottawa), Saskatchewan, three of the four Atlantic provinces (Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and New Brunswick), as well as a dynamic national youth chapter. Equal Voice’s members include non-partisan individuals as well as women and men from all of Canada’s major political parties. The Equal Voice Advisory Board includes some of Canada’s most prominent women politicians – all groundbreakers in their time – representing three political parties. Equal Voice Youth (EVY) was established in the summer of 2005 to engage young Canadians in a drive to ensure that women are equally represented in public life, where research shows that outreach to young women is a crucial factor in pursuit of this goal.
