Democratic Renewal

An Electoral System for All


Democracy in Canada is at a critical juncture. The Liberal government has committed to moving beyond our firstpast-the-post (FPTP) electoral system and replacing it with something better suited to democracy in the 21st century.

In fact, during the 2015 election, the Liberal Party promised that it would be the last election conducted under the current system. This means that Canadians now have an opportunity that few in this country have genuinely had before: We can help decide how members of Parliament are elected. Moreover, we can choose a system that will serve and represent Canadians fairly and equally while better engaging them in the political process. And that’s a system based on proportional representation.
