Seminar supporting women’s participation in Toronto’s local government
Toronto Budget Chief Councillor Shelley Carroll (Ward 33 Don Valley East) and Councillor Pam McConnell (Ward 28 Toronto Centre-Rosedale), Chair of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities' Committee on Women's Participation, will be hosting an evening seminar on Toronto’s finances and budget.

Date: Thursday, May 6
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: Council Chamber, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

The seminar is offered as part of the program for developing women’s knowledge and skills in municipal governance. Interested women are invited to attend this informal seminar - and there is no need to register in advance.

Young women who are participating in the Toronto Regional Champion Campaign will also be attending and will be available for media interviews. The Champion Campaign teams up young women who are interested in politics and municipal activism with the City’s women councillors so the young women involved can gain experience with the role of a City councillor.
