Le Caucus parlementaire multipartite des femmes (APWC)
(Décembre 2015)

A propos

Formel ou informel
Le forum est ouvert aux parlementaires masculins
Le forum est multipartite
The APWC has existed on and off since the late 1980s and it was most recently re-constituted during the 42nd Parliament, which sat between 3 December 2015 and 11 September 2019. There is no public record for the APWC having met since the Oct 2019 federal elections.

Membership is open to Senators or Members of Parliament of all political parties.

The APWC has no written rules and works strictly on a consensus basis. Each member of the caucus executive takes responsibility for communicating events to their respective party caucus colleagues on the Hill.
