Your ballot, your decision

According to the polls this election is too close to call.

Millions of Canadians already cast their votes in advance polls and today the rest of us will have our turn. One message you delivered loud and clear in the leadup to this election is you want the next government elected to act immediately and urgently on the climate crisis.

No matter which party – or parties – are given power tonight to represent us in Parliament, the Council of Canadians will not stop pushing elected representatives to act for the change we need.

What to vote for

The Council of Canadians is non-partisan and does not endorse any parties or candidates. But if you haven’t yet made up your mind on who to vote for, our Voter’s Guide highlights where the parties stand on key issues.

How and where to vote

Be sure to double-check your local voting times – they vary from region to region. By law, if you’re eligible to vote, your employer has to ensure you have enough time on election day to vote.

Even when you’re on the voter’s list you still need to prove who you are and where you live. It’s best to make sure that you have the ID you’ll need to vote.

If you’ve received a Voter Information Card in the mail, you can use it along with another piece of identification to vote. Your card lists where you go to vote, or you can check with Elections Canada to confirm your polling location.

If you’re not yet registered, you can do so at your polling station. Just bring the same ID you would need to vote.

Today you have the opportunity to set a new course for Canada’s future. Tomorrow, the Council of Canadians will reinvigorate our efforts on your behalf to ensure this future brings the changes we need and want.
