The Canadian Federal Election is scheduled for October 21, 2019.
Given the importance Federal services play in our everyday lives, it is imperative not only as Muslims to be engaged but as proud Canadians as well. With over one million Muslims calling Canada home, our community has an obligation to be engaged and play role how our country is governed and who it is governed by.
In the 2015 Federal Election, for the first time in Canada’s history, Canadian Muslims voted at rates above the national average – turnout reached 79% vs the national average of 68%. We hope to build on this momentum and continue to raise the bar for the community.
Politicians of all stripes and levels of government have taken notice of this trend which makes imperative to continue to speak loudest by voting.
The Canadian-Muslim Vote, together with our partners, will be hosting a series of civic engagement events across Canada to help the community understand the importance of voting in the provincial election. In addition to these events, a variety of educational tools will be available through our website and social media platforms to help Canadian Muslims in Ontario make an informed decision at the ballet box.
