Election Toolkits

2019 Federal Election Toolkit

October 21, 2019 is Election Day in Canada. On that day, eligible voters exercise their right to vote for one of the candidates in their riding to represent them in the federal House of Commons.

The purpose of the 2019 Federal Election Toolkit is to support individuals and community groups in their advocacy for legislation, policy and practice that benefit children and youth and their families.

The toolkit is structured around the 4 Keys to Success. Each section highlights some of the current issues facing children, youth and families in BC and Canada and suggests solutions government can act on, in the form of questions to candidates.This year, in honour of the 30th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and 30 years since the 1989 all-party House of Commons resolution to end child poverty by the year 2000, we feature a few special initiatives.

Information on how to vote, how to organize an all-candidates meeting, how to contact the media, candidates and political parties is available on our child poverty website: www.Still1in5.ca
