About Theresa


Councillor Theresa Kavanagh is honoured to be appointed the first Women and Gender Equity Liaison for City Council. “I’m proud to take on this important responsibility. We, as a City, need to look at what we can do to make Ottawa a City for all women.  I look forward to finding ways to strengthen new and existing policies, and programs to remove barriers and create more inclusive and responsive services through a gender-equality lens.”

Theresa is also serving on the following boards and committees over her 2018 – 2022 term:


In 2010, Theresa ran for school board trustee in Bay Ward (Zone 4) on the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, and was elected.  She was re-elected in 2014 and, during her eight years on the Board, worked closely with families on the organization of school programs.
