Resources for Women Running for Municipal Office

The Government of Alberta's "Ready for Her" resources provides a guide for women considering running for municipal office. As the Government of Alberta states "municipal councils work to improve residents' quality of life. They do so best by considering how their decisions affect different groups. A diverse council means a group of people who reflect the community are making these decisions."
