|We will need your help to win the next election. If you can spare a few hours we have many tasks you may enjoy doing. Your help can make a difference.|
At this early stage of Party development, we are actually more interested in membership declarations than in collecting names of volunteers for particular roles. However, we would be pleased if you wrote us to contribute in any way.
Primary: (before the application for registration has been sent to Elections Canada)
« Registration form downloads are available for membership declarations and each Officer role.
4Detailed requirements for each role (prior to the development of our own by-laws) can be viewed on the above Elections Canada website
4Membership declarations will be accepted anytime but people will want to know what they are joining; hence the development of a substantial, draft policy document is a priority. Note that Elections Canada, as part of the application audit, will be sending members a request for confirmation of your membership. Note also that the application for registration is a public document with Elections Canada.
Eligibility: (Preliminary/subject to change) The only restriction for membership is Canadian citizenship and to be 18 years of age or over; however, all roles above regular members cannot be members, agents or candidates of other registered parties, or directly in their employ, etc.
Secondary: (after the application for registration has been sent to Elections Canada)
4people with political organization, legal, and Freedom of Information/Privacy knowledge and experience
4people with marketing/communication experience
4people with graphics/website/programming knowledge -- this must not be underestimated. The Web is the great equalizer, hastens getting out the message, and reduces costs significantly. But the message (the website) still has to be a good one. Note: In addition to reserving democrat.ca, web hosting (of at least a temporary nature) has been arranged
4people with ideas and enthusiasm who want to promote the objectives of the Party
To register the Party we must agree to run at least one candidate in the upcoming election, which could be less than a year away. I am prepared to serve as a candidate, however the priority must be to find the best candidates possible so I am hoping and presuming we can find people better than I. Note: This Party must not simply be looking for the best girl guide cookie salesperson. (I have some creative and democratic suggestions for avoiding this problem.)
Once this is done, the usual requirements for national and local campaigns will exist:
Web Design and Programming
Layout and Design
Coalition Building Administrative/Office Management Party/Constituency Liaison Earned Media and Public Relations Events Planning and Advance Work Elections Canada Compliance Fundraising Grassroots Organization Legal/Insurance Issues Opposition Research Paid Media (Radio and Television) Scheduling Speechwriting Survey Research Fundraising and Events Other
