Women’s Commission


The two main goals of the New Brunswick Women’s Liberal Commission (NBWLC) are to support women candidates running for the Liberal Party at both the provincial and federal level, and to be the voice of women with the Liberal Party at all levels.

The NBWLC partners with the Liberal Party of New Brunswick to recruit and train women interested in getting involved in politics, whether as a Candidate for Nomination or as key campaign organizers.
