FEDERAL ELECTION 2019

The 2019 Canadian federal election is scheduled to take place on or before October 21, 2019. 


As of July 14th, 338Canada.com has the Liberals and Conservatives tied at 147 seats each (a big change from a month ago when they had the Conservatives up at 160 seats!).  But it's early - and this will definitely change.  Learn more here.  And to visit all the party websites, visit here.


Help ensure that access to justice is high on on all candidates’ radar in the 2019 federal election.  Check out some of the ways you and/or your Association can get involved here.  And keep an eye on this page as we work to build it out.

HOST AN ALL CANDIDATES DEBATE ON JUSTICE ISSUES

What better way to get all your local (major party) candidates together to hear about where they stand on justice issues than to host an all-candidates debate at your local courthouse?  You may even want to open it up to the public!  And don't forget to inform the local press.

VOLUNTEER YOUR SERVICES ON A CAMPAIGN

Every candidate needs legal help.  Serving as a general legal advisor on a local campaign to deal with advertising, social media, lawn sign placement, and other campaign-related issues is one way to serve.   Campaigns also look to have lawyers on hand for election day (vote counting and ballot shenanigans).


But they should also have a policy advisor on justice issues.  


Call up the campaign office of the candidate you'd most like to help and offer your assistance.  You're sure to be an asset!
