CANADA VOTES 2019

Greetings!

Welcome to the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association - 2019 Canada Votes Election Series. In anticipation of the 2019 General Election, the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association has partnered with Elections Canada to educate you about reducing barriers to voting through civic engagements and information activities. 

The Canadian Hard of Hearing Association wants to ensure the federal elections are accessible to persons with hearing loss in Canada. To be clear, we are working directly with Elections Canada and not affiliated with any political party to ensure your communication needs are met during the election.

In the upcoming months you will be provided with a full range of resources to empower you to be fully engaged with the election process.

Remember this is your federal election and you have the right to be included and to make your vote heard.

Regards,

Christopher T. Sutton

Inspire Democracy: Get Involved in the 2019 Federal Election
Juan Melara-Pineda, holds a PhD in Political Science from the University of Ottawa and has worked in electoral administration since 2013. His doctoral thesis focused on political participation of ethnic minorities.

A Federal Election is being planned for October 2019. Elections Canada is recruiting and you can be involved and even work on the election. Elections Canada has launched an initiative to better inform electors, about voting, and the different ways to take part in the democratic process for the next federal election.

Elections Canada will hire over 280,000 people to make sure the next general election runs smoothly. Working at an election is an opportunity to play an important role in the democratic process. The fixed date for the next federal election is on October 21, 2019.

Working at a federal election
The next federal election is coming and Elections Canada will hire over 285,000 people to make sure it runs smoothly.

The Canadian Hard of Hearing Association (CHHA) is working with Elections Canada to better inform our audience not only about voting in a federal election, but also about the different ways to take part in the democratic process for the next federal election, one of which is working in a federal election. Working at an election is an opportunity to play an important role in the democratic process and one of Elections Canada’s goals is to reach electors who face barriers to participating in an election and to help them feel more comfortable getting involved.

Reasons why we think CHHA members should consider working in the next general election:
  1.  Working in the election is helping Canada’s democracy. When you work at a federal election, you have the chance to make voting more welcoming and accessible to our community. By being a friendly face at the polling station or Elections Canada office, you help other people feel comfortable and confident when they vote.
  2. You get to meet new people. You’ll meet new coworkers and people in your community while they are joining together an important civic exercise.
  3. Learn new skills. You’ll get work experience and skills, which you can add to your résumé. You’ll also learn more about elections and how they work.
  4. Get paid to do it! You get paid for working in a federal election, and you get paid for the training too.
