The City of St. Catharines and Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce (GNCC) are teaming up to get more women on the municipal ballot, and in seats around the City Council table.
Thanks to a grant from Women and Gender Equality Canada, in partnership with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, the City is excited to launch Seat at the Table, a new mentorship program in cooperation with the GNCC’s Women in Niagara volunteer advisory council. Applications to the program open today for women who have an interest in politics willing to undergo six months of mentorship with the City’s three female councillors; Ward 1 Coun. Lori Littleton, Ward 4 Coun. Karrie Porter, and Ward 5 Coun. Dawn Dodge.
