Application Deadline June 30th for Canada 150 Project Directed at Young Women
OTTAWA, June 22, 2016 /CNW/ - Young women across Canada are being called on to become "Daughters of the Vote" with a new video released by Equal Voice. Daughters of the Vote is an innovative program designed to engage young Canadian women, aged 18 – 23, in politics. The deadline for application is June 30th. The video is being launched at a special event on Parliament Hill on Wednesday.
The new Daughters of the Vote video features Members of Parliament talking about what they wished they knew when they were 20, and encourages young women to apply to the program. Equal Voice is selecting 338 young women from every riding across the country to participate in a 2017 leadership summit, which will feature the young women filling every seat in the House of the Commons for a special session.
More information on the program is available at www.daughtersofthevote.ca
