Elections are critical opportunities for non-profit organizations to contribute to discourse, raise issues and secure commitments from political parties. With a federal election date set for October 21, 2019 followed by a provincial election in early 2020, now is the time to start planning your electoral involvement.


Workshop Overview

In this half-day workshop, participants will walk away with a greater understanding of:

  • Why fixed-election dates matter to non-profit organizations and what the regulatory framework allows (and does not allow) during elections.
  • The various approaches employed by non-profit organizations in relation to electoral activities.
  • A range of permitted electoral activities that your organization can consider employing.

About the Facilitators


Karine Levasseur, Ph.D


Karine is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Studies at the University of Manitoba. She earned her PhD. in the School of Public Policy and Administration at Carleton University. While Karine has many research interests, she is particularly interested in how governments in Canada relate (or do not relate) to voluntary organizations. Her research explores how voluntary organizations can become more meaningfully involved in public policy development, and not just resigned to implement public policy decisions made without their involvement.


Andrea Rounce, Ph.D


Andrea is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Studies at the University of Manitoba. She teaches and researches in public administration. A primary focus of Andrea’s research is government's use of public opinion research and consultation; public sector governance; and research methodology. Emphasizing the need to bridge theory and practice, Andrea also works with public sector organizations on policy and governance issues while working collaboratively on community engagement and education projects around elections and voting.
