Platform Priorities Update April 27-May 3


Our 2023 Election Priorities 

On Monday, April 24th, The Nonprofit Vote hosted Rachel Notley to an audience of nearly 300 nonprofit leaders at The Grand Theatre in Calgary. There will be lots to come in our analysis of all party platforms, but one notable tidbit from this event is that NDP Leader Rachel Notley announced a $240M commitment to FCSS and related programs, representing $80M above the existing budget. We look forward to hosting leader of the UCP, Danielle Smith at a future date to hear her commitments for the sector.  

Election Advocacy 

Women’s Health Week 2023 is a pan-Canadian initiative of the Women’s Health Coalition (WHC) that raises awareness, inspires bold conversations and engagement to address barriers and biases in women’s health. This group is engaging in election advocacy, including hosting all candidate forums in Calgary and Edmonton
