Women in Local Government

Participating Communities

FCM will work with five municipalities and will support elected officials to engage with urban Indigenous, racialized, and under-represented immigrant women in creating a more inclusive municipal decision-making system. At the end of the initiative, municipalities will have worked in partnership with community organizations to implement strategies, recommendations, policies and procedures to strengthen the voice of women from diverse communities.
