Be A Candidate

Since you are on this page, you’re obviously interested in being a candidate for the Party. That's great! Not only will you be helping the cause, but you will be ensuring you have someone to vote for if you run in your own riding. If we already have a Libertarian running in your riding, you can help out our Full Slate project by running in a riding with no Libertarian Candidate.

To start the process, and to receive information updates and resource material on becoming a candidate, please provide your name and contact details below:

If you have not already joined the party, you will need to sign up as a Voting Member. You can do this online or you can complete and mail the Membership Application to the address on the form with a donation to cover your membership fee (and more if you would like to make a contribution to our election campaign).

Ultimately it will be up to you to decide how much time and effort you want to put into your campaign.  It takes only a few hours to get your name and the Party name on the ballot. Once on the ballot you may act as a ‘paper’ candidate that does very little during the campaign, maybe just one or two media interviews.  We expect half of our Full Slate will be paper candidates.  If you want to be more active, you can participate in All-Candidates meetings, distribute pamphlets, put up signs and knock on doors.  No matter what your choice is, we sincerely appreciate your committment to helping us reach our goals!

Elections are our best opportunity to get our message out.  While the term “libertarian” is heard more often, there are still lots of people who don’t know that we exist or what the term means.  We need your help to change this.  Please use our online donation page to contribute $500, $300, $200, or whatever you can afford, to our campaign through PayPal.  If you prefer to send a cheque, mail it to the address here.  Do it now, to ensure you take advantage of the refundable Political Tax Credit.  You will get back 75% of the first $399 contributed in a year and 50% of the next $931.
