What is advocacy?
Advocacy is about speaking up and taking action for what you believe in. It’s standing up for your own rights or the rights of others and actively working to make positive changes in your community or society.
When a municipality, such as Cochrane, advocates to the provincial and federal governments, it means the local government is not only speaking up but also taking concrete actions to address the needs and concerns of its residents. This could involve asking for funding or support for important community projects like building roads, improving infrastructure, providing better health care services, or addressing environmental issues. Municipalities do this to ensure their community’s needs are heard and addressed by larger governments.
