Federal Electoral Reform Committee

The Canadian government is currently running a review process with the goal of recommending by December a new voting system for Canada.


In the run-up to last year’s election, the Liberal Party said “We are committed to ensuring that 2015 will be the last federal election conducted under the first-past-the-post voting system,” and the federal government has recently launched an all-party Electoral Reform Committee to officially review our voting system and recommend reforms.

We encourage you to visit the official website to learn more about the committee, to sign up for updates as it does its work, to read the minutes of the meetings, and to find out about any public meetings being scheduled for your riding.

The Committee will shortly be soliciting submissions of up to 3000 words from individuals (prior to October 7th), and all MPs around the country have been asked to host town hall meetings this summer to hear from constituents. We strongly encourage you to contact your MP to ask when the town hall in your riding will be scheduled.
