In 2022, Niagara Region kicked off a new initiative designed to change the face of elected councils in municipal politics with the launch of the Niagara Region Seat at the Table program. Women, gender-diverse individuals and people from underrepresented backgrounds are encouraged to attend. These sessions provide useful information whether you are considering running for municipal council in the future or want to support a female or gender diverse councillor or candidate.
The Seat at the Table project is in partnership with Niagara Region, the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce, Women in Niagara, City of St. Catharines, YWCA, Future Black Female, Services 4 Humanity, Muslim Senior Circle and Niagara Region’s Women’s Advisory Committee. It is being supported by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Canadian Women in Local Leadership Program with funding from Women and Gender Equality Canada.
