Tiffany Lee FCM Scholarship Recipient
On Monday, June 20th 2016, I had the honour of awarding Miss Tiffany Lee with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Canadian Women in Municipal Government Scholarship. Miss Lee is an exceptional young woman, now graduated from Central Memorial High School in Ward 11.
This yearly scholarship is awarded to young women across Canada who demonstrate leadership within their high schools. This is part of the FCM’s Standing Committee on increasing women’s participation in local governmental work; a committee on which I serve. The goal of this committee is to see more young women become engaged in local government and for them to consider it as a viable career path. The United Nations has set a target of at least 30 per cent female representation in all orders of government as it is at this representation the balance tips and the conversation changes.

Miss Lee is a young woman who has shown considerable leadership within her high school. In grade 10, she saw a problem with engagement, participation, and student apathy in how the students worked together as a community. Throughout her high school career she has worked in a strong leadership capacity to build student spirit and community. It is this leadership that Miss Lee has shown from such a young age that it must be encouraged in all young women. The key to solving so many issues is to ensure that young women across the planet have access to education.
Congratulations, Miss Lee on your passion and commitment to inclusive leadership. And, please join me in wishing her well as she pursues her post-secondary studies on governance and international relations at the University of British Columbia in the fall.
