TODAY: Your ballot, our collective future r1 ... Election 2021 Dear Friend,

Today, Canadians will head to the polls for a snap election. At a moment when the country is grappling with multiple, overlapping crises – from the pandemic to the climate emergency, ongoing injustices against Indigenous peoples, systemic racism, and rampant inequality – we know that the outcome of this election will be critical.

And while our work in building a better future doesn’t start and end with electing federal politicians, casting a vote gives us an opportunity to demand progressive change.

Millions of Canadians have already cast their votes in advance polls and today the rest of us will have our turn.

Who to vote for

The Council of Canadians is non-partisan and does not endorse any parties or candidates. But if you haven’t yet made up your mind on who to vote for, we have compiled a series of questions on the key election issues on the ballot this year: climate, Indigenous rights, water, Big Pharma, long-term care, and electoral reform.

We encourage you to read through these questions and then explore the different party platforms (Greens, Liberals, NDP, Progressive Conservatives) and vote for the local candidate that offers the best plan for addressing them.

How and where to vote

Be sure to double-check your local voting times – they vary from region to region. By law, if you’re eligible to vote, your employer must ensure you have enough time to do so on election day.

If you’re registered, by now you should have received a voter information card in the mail. It tells you where and when you can vote. If the name and address on your card are correct and you meet the eligibility criteria stated on the card, you’re ready to vote. Take the card with you, along with a piece of ID, to make the voting process easier.

If you’re not yet registered, you can do so at your polling station. Check with Elections Canada to confirm your polling location, and go here to see a list of acceptable forms of ID.

And no matter which party – or parties – are given power to represent us in Parliament, you can count on the Council of Canadians to keep working on your behalf to ensure that this future brings the changes we need.

With hope and resolve,

Christina Warner and Ravi Joshi, Interim Co-Executive Directors
