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.

And Then There Were None, with Rachel Notley
Rachel Notley made history when she was elected as the 17th Premier of Alberta in 2015, leading the province’s first New Democratic Party government after four decades of Progressive Conservative rule. In the 2019 Alberta election, Notley became the most recent female First Minister to not be given a second chance, losing to Jason Kenney’s United Conservatives. Notley now serves as the Leader of the Official Opposition – and she’s got quite a story to tell
The Event days until the big event
No Second Chances will culminate in a historic event where Canada’s female First Ministers come 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 new weekly podcast
