We are the party of big ideas, because we know we’re stronger together
New Democrats have built great things – like universal health care, retirement pensions, and protections for workers. Things that still define what it means to be Canadian. When we have succeeded, it’s because of the inspiration, the dedication, and the energy that comes from all of you.
This is a big moment for our party, and for our country. Convention is where we lay the groundwork for the next two years and beyond. So we want to invite you to be a part of it. Whether you’ve been a member for many years, you just joined today, or you want to learn more about what it means to be a New Democrat – if you want to help build a fairer, more just Canada, you belong at Convention 2018.
