Start a Fair Vote Canada team or chapter

Want to get the word out about fair voting in your community?  Start a Fair Vote Canada team or chapter! Dedicated individuals working in teams and chapters do some of the most important work of our grassroots organization. Teams can do as little or as much as their members have time for— it does not need to be a huge commitment. Every effort moves us towards winning a fair electoral system.

What do teams and chapters do?

Starting a team is easy:

  1. Talk to others in your community who might be interested in helping you. Even one other person is enough.
  2. Set a time and place for a first informal meeting or first event (a coffee shop, library or community centre are a few suggestions).
  3. Email Anita Nickerson (anita.nickerson@fairvote.ca), and she’ll invite all of Fair Vote Canada’s local members and contacts to support and attend your initiative.

We’ve never had a better chance to achieve proportional representation at the federal level. 39% of the vote for any party should not mean 100% of the power. Canadian voters deserve a fair electoral system. Together, we can make it happen.

Fair Vote Canada National Council

Fair Vote Canada is governed by a democratically elected National Council of 15 persons. Five people are elected each year to a three-year term using the Single Transferable Vote (STV), a proportional voting system. The current members and officers of the FVC National Council, with term expiry dates, are listed below.

National Advisory Board

The National Advisory Board is comprised of prominent Canadians from a wide variety of backgrounds and political viewpoints. Appointed by the National Council, the members of the Advisory Board provide advice, assist with strategy and contacts, and publicly support Fair Vote Canada. The members of the Advisory Board are:
