You high-five your adventure buddy after a great outing, why not high-five your MP or MPP when they’re taking great action on climate? It’s also important to advocate for change, so if your elected official is not a climate champion, tell them you’re disappointed and ask them why they’re on the sidelines or inactive on the issue.

Voting in municipal, provincial and federal elections is one of the most basic and fundamental ways to influence change. Millennials (approx. 1980-2000) are now the single largest voting segment in Canada (they have enough numbers to determine an election result on their own) and rank climate change as a top priority but, historically, have low turn-out on election day.
Here are some tips to make voting a priority:
- Confirm you’re registered to vote. If not, no worries – you can show-up at a voting station on election day with proper ID
- Add upcoming election dates into your calendar and share it with family, friends and colleagues. It can be a fun group outing and a way to hold each other accountable.
- Employers are obligated in Canada to give workers time off to vote, so arrange time off with your employer or better yet, plan a voting party for your entire company!
