Only twelve women have ever reached Canada’s most senior political role: as a First Minister (Prime Minister or Premier). The leadership of these remarkable women spans three decades, crosses political stripes, and extends from coast to coast to coast.
No Second Chances is about examining the rise and fall of these women – and what their experiences reflect about us as Canadians.
Twelve Women. Three Decades. One Journey.
This is No Second Chances.

Finale, Part 4: Towards Gender Equality in Canada
Introduced by longtime political commentator Steve Paikin, former Prime Minister Kim Campbell spoke about her short but impactful time in Canada’s highest political rank, what life looked like after leaving, and what keeps her hopeful about seeing the next female prime minister in Canada.
No Second Chances culminated in a historic event where Canada’s female First Ministers came together for a moderated, future-focused conversation about how we can strengthen Canadian democracy and address the long-standing underrepresentation of women in Canadian politics.
If you haven’t been following No Second Chances, you can hear directly from these women through Canada 2020’s podcast.
