Instagram Campaign (Fall 2021)

During the Federal election, we introduced a fresh Instagram campaign to prompt discussions on a range of topics including the environment, energy, childcare, small business, government debt, inflation, and Indigenous issues. The 28-day campaign which featured daily newsfeed posts and Instagram stories and our new brand, resulted in 497 content interactions and reached 354K Instagram accounts (1,154 followers/ 344K non-followers).

Question of the Day Campaign (Fall 2019)

In advance of the 2019 election, we launched an inaugural campaign to encourage women to weigh in on issues and vote. Posing a Question of the Day on Instagram supported by email blasts, we shone a spotlight on the economy, energy, global emissions, climate change, the cost of living, and trust in elected officials. Our questions surfaced conversations about regional divisions, Canada’s waning international influence, the inability to attract capital, and the long‐term social and economic implications of Canada’s growing debt. They also revealed how much we have in common and a shared vision for a Canada better.

In person Sessions (Fall 2019)

Led by Dr. Lucy Miller, our former CEO, Canada Powered by Women, hosted a series of in-person sessions with women in Calgary, Regina, Toronto, Montreal, and online sessions with university students in Calgary and Toronto. Attendees participated in lively discussions about the issues that mattered most during the 2019 election.

Empowering Women Voters: September 2021

Canada Powered By Women contracted Leger to conduct an omnibus survey with Canadians regarding decision-making when voting in the 2021 Federal election. We were particularly interested in how the views of males and females differ when it comes to:

  • Important issues in politics

  • How they become informed on issues and deciding who to vote for

  • Views on how political topics are represented in mainstream media
