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 (, and she’ll invite all of Fair Vote Canada’s local members and contacts to support and attend your initiative.
