Dedicated to supporting women & gender diverse New Democrats seek office and win across Nova Scotia.

Alexa was nothing short of a trailblazer in life. She was the first woman to lead a major political party in Canada when she became leader of the Nova Scotia NDP in 1980, and was the first woman to run to be Premier of any province. In 1995 she was elected to lead Canada's New Democrats and became the first woman to run to be both Premier and Prime Minister.

For years Alexa championed getting women elected to public office at every level. This provincial fund continues empowering that legacy. Donate to the Alexa McDonough Fund
