People living on low-income are less likely to vote than people with higher incomes.

As a result, some elected officials can think they don’t have to listen to the concerns of people living on low-income. In Ottawa, residents and community organizations are working together to turn this around through Making Votes Count Where We Live.

The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre,

The Coalition of Community Health and Resource Centres of Ottawa

and the City for All Women Initiative have teamed up.

They are recruiting women living on low income to join FORCES with women from across the city in sharing insights and developing  skills to encourage others to get involved in the upcoming election.

Regardless of MONEY – everyone has a vote – have your voice heard!!
