2017 Federal Byelections

On April 3, 2017, byelections will be held in five federal ridings:

  • Calgary Heritage (Alberta)
  • Calgary Midnapore (Alberta)
  • Markham-Thornhill (Ontario)
  • Ottawa-Vanier (Ontario)
  • Saint-Laurent (Quebec)

Before election day, CNA urged Canadians in these ridings to take action by calling on candidates to support the need for:

  • Transparent accountability on spending federal home care dollars
  • Improved support for family caregivers

We offered several documents to help voters get their message across:

  • Byelection primer [PDF, 117.3 KB] — key questions voters could ask the federal candidates
  • Tips and tools [PDF, 84.5 KB] — advice on how to get their voice heard before election day
  • Home care fact sheets on nurses [PDF, 91.6 KB] and caregivers [PDF, 109.1 KB]

We also helped voters learn more about the byelections and the candidates from elections.ca and about the main parties’ platforms from their websites:
