Help Us Spread the Word! Proportional Representation for Canada ~ Let’s make all votes count!

To determine the best model of Proportional Representation for Canada, while respecting the need for all MPs to face the voters and be accountable to voters, we call on federal parties to commit to:

  1. Conducting a multi-partisan process involving citizen and expert consultation to determine the best model.
  2. Implementing the model in time to Make Every Vote Count in the 2019 election.

Canadians deserve a voting system that represents all of us.  Fair Vote Canada is going to make that happen, but we can’t do it without your help.  There are many ways to get involved, and it’s easy to get started:

Send Our Open Letter to Justin Trudeau

Tell Justin Trudeau and Minister of Democratic Institutions Maryam Monsef that we need a process we can trust!

Toronto Women’s March – January 21st – 12 noon – South Lawn of Queen’s Park

While the organizers of the march and all of the speakers are women, or women-identified individuals, the action is open to everyone. The Women’s March on Washington: Toronto is a family-friendly march in support of people of all genders and those who don’t conform to a gender binary.

In the spirit of saying no to hate and yes to justice, equity and social change, people around the world will be mobilizing and resisting the day after Trump has been inaugurated as US President. Our resistance sends a message that we will not be silent or idle.

The lived experiences of colonialism and anti-black racism, xenophobia, homophobia and transphobia, sexism, ableism and many other forms of oppression have existed long before Donald Trump, but we worry that the recent US election has provided a new wave that normalizes and makes hate acceptable. May our voices be heard to clearly say no to hate.

Mentorship: A Gift of Caring that Changes Lives

How We Help

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Halton is a charitable organization providing mentors to children and youth in need of extra adult support. We serve over 1,200 children in Oakville, Milton and Halton Hills, in programs tailored to unique needs.

Each time we pair a child with a mentor or bring a group of students to an in-school program, we start something incredible – a life-changing relationship
built on sharing wisdom, respect and empowerment.

As role models, our mentors teach the value of:

 giving and giving back
 respecting for family, peers and community
 learning from both successes and challenges
 staying in school

Witnessing the transformation of a child into a confident, vibrant and motivated young person is a remarkable thing. Ushering them into adulthood, seeing them grow into a successful, responsible member of their community and society at large is even more satisfying.
