A better Canada starts here – register as a Delegate for Ottawa 2018
Every two years, New Democrats gather to decide the future of our party – and we want you to be a part of it.
Becoming a delegate means you get to make important decisions like:
- The content of our Constitution, including rules around membership, leadership contests, and the structure of our party.
- The policy priorities of our party – our Policy Book outlines our positions as a party, and convention is our opportunity to add or change things.
- The election of party officers, like the President and Vice President of our party.
Convention is also an amazing place to learn about our party, share your ideas, and meet other New Democrats from across the country. And we have a lot of fun, too.
But to be a delegate, you need to be an NDP member, first – join now.
Becoming a Delegate
Current NDP members are eligible to be selected as delegates of their local EDA (Electoral District Association), NDP youth organization, or affiliated union.
If you’re not sure how to get involved, no problem! You can email email@example.com – we’d love to connect you with your local NDP community and help you become a delegate!
Once you’ve been selected as a delegate, you’ll be given an EasyCode to use when you register. If you were chosen as a delegate but not given an EasyCode, we recommend you contact your EDA, youth organization, or union.
A limited number of spots may be available for people who aren’t able to become a delegate through their local NDP community. If you weren’t able to get a delegate spot through your EDA, Youth organization, or union, you can let us know – and we’ll do our best to find you an unused delegate spot. Apply by selecting “I wish to register as a delegate, but I do not have a Convention EasyCode.”
Don’t miss out on Early Bird Prices – register before February 2nd.
