How do I become a delegate?
Your local Electoral District Association (EDA) will hold a delegate selection meeting this spring where applications will be considered. If there are more than 10 applicants from your riding, there will be a vote held to select your riding’s delegates. The full rules will be available soon. Please contact your local EDA and monitor their website regularly for updates.
What happens if I am not selected as a delegate?
You may register as a Member Observer. You will be able to attend all Convention programming and debates but will not be able to participate in the debate process or vote on policy proposals or constitution amendments. Only delegates are able to debate and vote on the business of the convention.
How will I know if I have been selected as a delegate?
If you have been elected as a delegate for your riding and are not present at the Delegate Selection Meeting for the announcement of elected Delegates, you will be advised by phone call or email (or both) from the EDA President or Regional Organizer.
How do I submit a proposal for Policy or Constitutional Amendment?
Proposals are submitted through your Electoral District Association (EDA). Each EDA is permitted to submit proposals and to vote on proposals using one designated account per EDA. Please contact your EDA President, Policy Committee Chair, or Constitution Committee Chair to engage in this process.
How are the final proposals and amendments to be debated at the Convention?
The top ranked proposals in both constitution and policy, as drafted by members through their EDAs, and advanced through sanctioned Regional Meetings or voted on by members through their EDAs on the “Ideas Lab” will be presented to delegates at the convention workshops by the sponsoring EDA. A recognized representative of our elected Caucus will then have an opportunity to provide their perspective. Delegates indicating a desire to speak to any submission once introduced may be recognized by the moderator to speak to the proposal. The moderator will alternate from those in favor and those opposed as outlined in the convention debate rules.
When will policy voting take place?
Voting will take place at the National Policy Convention held in Quebec City from Friday, September 8 to Saturday, September 9.
How do I run for a position on National Council?
The Rules and Procedures for the Election of the National Council and the Application Form will be posted shortly.
