    The Green Party of Canada's Saanich-Gulf Islands Electoral District Association is proud to be one of the most engaged and active EDAs in Canada. We've worked hard to keep our community of volunteers engaged and contributing to the improvement of our Party.

    Date: Saturday June 13, 2020 UPDATE: now July 18, 2020

    Time: 2:00pm - 4:00pm

    Please arrive at least 15 minutes early so we may begin on time. Contact us to arrange a ride from the ferries.

    Why we think you should come:

    A healthy democracy requires robust and diverse participation. With support surging across Canada, Greens are heading into uncharted territory. Now is the time to start thinking ahead to the next chapter for federal Greens not just in SGI, but in our region and province. It's also time to elect a few new members to the EDA's Executive Committee.

    Participatory Democracy is a critical part of building a healthier future—it's also one of the Six Global Green Principles, upon which this party was founded. We hope you'll come excited to participate and help set the direction for your local Green Electoral District Association for the year to come.

    Election of new members of the EDA Executive Committee

    To cast a ballot for our executive, you must be a member in good standing 30 days prior to the AGM. You can check your membership status by signing into www.greenparty.ca and visiting your member profile. 

    • Only Green Party of Canada members who signed up on or prior to May 14th 2020 are eligible to vote in the election.
    • Proper notice was sent out to current and lapsed members 60 days in advance, consistent with our bylaws.
    • Note: Lapsed members (your membership expired within the last year) have the option to renew on the spot and still vote, by making a minimum $10 donation upon arrival. 

    Under our constitution ratified at our 2017 AGM — click to view our constitution and by-laws — we elect members for a three year term, and we do not permit nominations from the floor. We do this on a rotating basis to provide continuity on the executive.
