Please consider sending a letter to your Member of Parliament. Here are templates that can be used.
GBI – MP Letter Completed Example
GBI – MP Letter Template
- This letter may be sent by email or by Canada Post to your MP
- Letters to MPs sent through Canada Post do not require any postage
- If sending by post, the MPs local office will receive the letter more quickly than their Ottawa office
- It is critical to include your address, especially your postal code, in the signature portion of the letter that you send; this is how MPs determine that you are a constituent who they represent in the House of Commons
- If you do not know your MP or their contact information, it can be found at https://www.ourcommons.ca/members/en
Letter campaigns like this are most effective when MPs receive a high volume of letters about the same issue. While it is more work, it is more effective if every member of a community writes a letter or email than to have one letter sent on behalf of everyone. This is a case where quantity is critical.
