Equity is dedicated to the election of a Council that is representative of all demographics, including those who self-identify on the basis of ability, age, ancestry, belief, ethnicity, gender, health or sexual orientation. Council particularly encourages Indigenous peoples (First Nations, Inuit, Métis) persons of colour, and D/deaf and/or persons with a disability(ies), to seek nomination for election.
Equity has improved the nomination and election process in many ways:
- Candidates may submit a video statement to be posted online.
- Virtual all-candidates meetings are now an option as well as in-person gatherings.
- New online nomination forms are available.
