#VoteArts2019 Election Toolkit

Are you ready for the Election? We’ve got you covered.

The Coalition is lucky to have a broad network of artists, organizations, and supporters that continue to advocate for a resilient arts and culture sector in Canada. Your voice is vital during the 2019 election and that’s why we’ve put together a handy toolkit to assist you from now until October, and beyond!

Ready to vote on October 21? Check out Elections Canada to verify, update or complete your voter registration online. The website also includes lots of ‘how-to’ information for voters.

Voting is the first step and there’s much more that we can do together. You can use the following documents to help spread the word via social media, to your networks, and to political candidates:

Social Media

Use the hashtag #votearts2019, alongside #canpoli to join the discussion

Talking with Candidates

Candidates want to hear from constituents. Take your voice to the next level and talk to your current (or potential) MP.

Leaders Debates and other events

An all leaders’ debate is an essential event for voters. Why not gather your friends and colleagues to watch a debate together?
Information about the English Language debate October 7, and French Language debate October 10 here.

Parties’ Positions on Arts and Culture

Questions and answers, videos, links to platforms (as they are released). Everything you need to know before you meet with a candidate and before you show up at the polling station.
