You Can Make a Difference

We need more women involved in all aspects of municipal government decision-making. Voting affects electoral outcomes, and we need more women to vote in municipal elections. Participating in public consultations is important because the information obtained from these meetings is used to make important public decisions. Women who sit on committees and boards contribute to decision-making that makes their communities better places to live. Senior municipal staff can have a significant impact on how decisions are made. As a member of Council you have the very important job of setting the policy direction for your municipality. Nova Scotia municipalities need women to be involved in all these ways.
