YOUR FEDERAL ELECTION HANDBOOK
WHAT MATTERS TO YOU?
When you see a headline in the news or a story on social media that makes you angry, sad or brings you tears, what do you do? Do certain stories that touch your heart make you want to spring into action?
There are many ways to make the world a better place. Taking action can be as small as offering your neighbour a cup of sugar, or signing a petition, and as big as volunteering for a cause you care about, or going to a rally.
What’s important is that everyone has a voice. When those voices are raised together, they become impossible to ignore.
Make our communities more resilient and our democracy stronger.
This October, we have the chance to make our voices heard in the Canadian federal election.
With our vote, we express the hopes and dreams for the future WE want and care about.
The following pages will equip you with everything you need to have the confidence to vote.
Remember - the people’s vote elects the government. Make an impact and make your vote count.
