Elections provide meaningful opportunities for public benefit nonprofits to engage communities and capture the attention of political parties and candidates.
Make the most of this year’s elections:
- Election advocacy toolkit – ONN
- Ridings map – Elections Ontario
- Presentation on the value of Ontario’s nonprofit sector – ONN. Download this presentation as a Powerpoint presentation and modify it to fit your nonprofit, to use when meeting with political candidates
- Not sure how to engage? Sign up for our public policy webinar: https://ontariononprofitnetwork.wildapricot.org/event-2805029
- Share your stories: Is your nonprofit, network, or association engaged in pre-election advocacy? Tell us about it: email@example.com.
Some great advocacy examples are emerging as the provincial election approaches:
- Our friends at the Rural Ontario Institute will provide an opportunity to each of the political parties to articulate how their platforms respond to rural priorities. To help formulate the questions of importance to rural Ontario, please take a moment to respond to the Institute’s short survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r
- A group of artists, arts workers, and arts supporters are working together to convey the power and impact of the arts in Ontario to decision makers, in time for the next provincial election and beyond. For more information: http://ontariansforthearts.ca
- The Association of Ontario Health Centres has released its pre-election platform, Health Equity at the Centre: https://www.aohc.org/Ontario-Election-2018
