Canada: New project announced to engage Prince Edward Island women in politics

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Organizers of a three-year project hope to increase the number of Island women engaging as elected representatives and organizers.

“Engaging Island Women for Political Action” is a project of the P.E.I. Coalition for Women in Government, Winding Path Inc., and Women’s Network P.E.I.

The groups received funding from Status of Women Canada with a focus of easing pathways for women to secure and advance in various political leadership roles.

Over the course of the project 100 women — 20 from each political party and 20 non-partisan women — will take part in a year-long leadership training program designed to enhance and increase personal leadership capacity and provide opportunities for participants to identify and realize personal goals within the democratic process.
