Voting in the 44th Canadian Federal Elections

Why should I vote?

This is the first federal election where Millennials and Gen Z make up 40% of Canada’s eligible voters and this is the time to get informed! Learning about the candidates in your riding and getting familiar with each party’s platforms can help you cast a vote that you feel reflects your values.

Gen Z and Millennials are less likely to be contacted by candidates during campaigning. This oversight often means that we are less likely to participate or be involved in an election, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
