Take Action: Democratic Reform

Join CPJ in calling for electoral reform in Canada!

CPJ believes in a well-functioning Canadian democracy that promotes public engagement. This includes reforming our electoral system to better reflect voter intentions, establishing clarity on political engagement of charities, and renewing our parliamentary process.

CPJ has long advocated for a system of proportional representation in Canada. During the 2015 federal election campaign, the Liberals committed to reform Canada’s electoral system before the 2019 federal election. In February 2017, they broke that promise.

Here are 3 ways that you can advocate for democratic reform:

  1. Read Faith in Our Vote: A Public Justice Case for Proportional Representation, CPJ’s Submission to the Special Committee on Electoral Reform.
  2. Sign-on to Fair Vote Canada’s Declaration of Voters’ Rights in support of fair representation in Parliament.
  3. Use Fair Vote Canada’s Open Letter to Justin Trudeau to send a message and ask the Prime Minster and the Minister of Democratic Institutions to reform our electoral system in a way that better reflects voters’ intentions.
