Municipal Campaign School for Women

Women interested in running in the 2016 municipal elections are invited to attend a women’s campaign school on Oct. 17.

The daylong event will feature presentations by past and present politicians and candidates, as well as information on campaign fundraising and social media.

“I attended a campaign school before seeking office in 2013. It was a very supportive environment and I took away a lot of valuable information,” said Joanne Bernard, Minister responsible for the Advisory Council on the Status of Women. “I encourage any woman who is thinking of participating in a campaign – as a volunteer or candidate – to attend.”

The campaign school is offered at no charge and bursaries are available for women who need child care.

Participants need to register. The deadline has been extended to Oct. 9. Contact Status of Women at women@novascotia.ca or visit women.gov.ns.ca/ to download registration forms.
