Electoral Reform Workshop

SAVE THE DATE: A Preference for Equality: Which Electoral Reform Options Support Women’s Equality and Diversity?

Please reserve Tuesday, September 20, 2016, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. to join the PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women and the PEI Coalition for Women in Government for a workshop on gender, diversity, and the way we vote.

Five electoral models have been proposed for PEI, and Island voters will have a chance to rank their preferences in a plebiscite vote. (Find out more from Elections PEI at yourchoicepei.ca.) But which of the options hold the most promise to support greater gender equality, diversity, and inclusion in PEI’s political system?

The workshop will be an interactive, participatory analysis of the possible effects of the five electoral options. The event will take place at St. Peter’s Cathedral Hall at the corner of Rochford Street and Fitzroy Street.

Both the Advisory Council on the Status of Women and the Coalition for Women in Government are members of the Coalition for Proportional Representation (peipr.ca), so expect to learn more about the proportional representation options in the election and why proportional representation is often considered a best practice for electing more women and what it would take to make any of the five proposed models more inclusive.

Equality Report Card 2018

no-grade-report-card-cover-wordle

 

History

The PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women Equality Report Card for PEI is a process to assess our Province’s progress towards women’s equality goals. The PEI Status of Women’s goal is to work collaboratively with government to help the Province to achieve high grades by responding to priority recommendations from women.

In 2007, the Advisory Council on the Status of Women introduced the report card process for following up on its past recommendations to government on key issues that affect the lives of Prince Edward Island girls, women, and their families. Council released its first Equality for PEI Report Card on June 17, 2008. The second ever Equality Report Card was released in June 2009. In June 2010, the Advisory Council published an Interim Trends Report to less formally indicate trends at the mid-way point between formal assessments. Full Equality Report Cards were published in June of 2011, 2013 and 2015.
