Meaningful Engagement Done Differently

We’re starting Canada’s largest ever discussion on our country’s future, and we want you to weigh in. It’s not about choosing sides—it’s about speaking your truth. All you need is five minutes to share your thoughts on what matters to you. We’ll take your opinions and put them in front of major decision makers to influence government policy. Together we can shape a country where all Candians can thrive.

Engage On Your Terms

What Sets Us Apart

We get it: We get it: life is busy, and keeping up with current events feels like more than we have time for. But you don’t need all the answers to have an opinion. Our goal is to keep it simple. We want to know what matters most in your life and discuss how these priorities are affected by government policy.

Your Democratic Rights Go Beyond Voting

An Invitation to All Canadians

We’re all more alike than we are different. Canada Powered by Women is bringing Canadians together from across all provinces and political backgrounds to spark conversations, find common ground, and shape policies that affect our everyday lives.

What We’re Doing Differently

The Common Sensus

Are the people representing us focusing on what matters to Canadians and Canadian organizations? Are current policies reflecting our beliefs and addressing our everyday struggles? Let us know what you think.

We’re publishing five new questions every week to find out what really matters to Canadians. We then gather your thoughts and share them with key influencers, including Members of Parliament and the media, sparking discussions and influencing policies that affect our everyday lives.

Event Highlights

Why the 2021 Election Matters:
A Conversation Among Canadian Women

In 2021, we brought together four incredible Canadian women to talk about the role of women in Canadian politics. We experienced an entirely new kind of conversation and learned:  

  • When you add women, you change politics. 

  • Working together to find common ground is not only necessary but also possible.

Participant Reviews

"I had goosebumps several times throughout the session."

"I was captivated the entire time."
