With the federal election fast approaching, Canadians will soon head to the polls to decide which candidates reflect their values and priorities for our country, both at home and abroad.
This fall election offers an excellent opportunity to find out what the candidates in your electoral district think of Canada’s role in responding to issues of global poverty, hunger and injustice, and to share your own opinions as a voter.
To help with this, a number of PWS&D partners have developed election resources.
The Canadian Foodgrains Bank has created a resource to help you discover where your candidates stand on the issue of ending global hunger.
The Canadian Council for International Cooperation is raising awareness on development and humanitarian policies in Canada and highlighting where the political parties stand on these issues. Click here for the resource.
Resources regarding issues related to refugee sponsorship are available from the Canadian Council for Refugees and the Canadian Refugee Sponsorship Agreement Holders Association
