Regional initiative aims to boost female participation in politics

Women, and especially those of minority groups, are significantly under-represented on Niagara Regional Council. Seven of the 32 councillors are female, and only two of Niagara’s 12 municipalities have female mayors.

The municipality’s Seat at the Table program aims to change that by offering virtual workshops focused on helping women become better informed about running for local government, addressing barriers that they might face, and providing mentorship and inspiration to include their voices in local politics.
