Find your local candidates

The federal election is on October 21, 2019. Below are ways you can find information on your local federal candidates.

Shaking hands and holding phoneIn person/online

Many candidates will also make themselves available to meet with voters to learn about their issues.

• Call your local candidate’s campaign office and ask for a brief phone or in-person meeting with them to discuss food allergy.

• Invite others in the community you know who are personally affected by food allergy to the meeting (e.g. local support network contacts, etc.).

• When requesting a meeting, introduce yourself, confirm you are a voter in the candidate’s riding, and let them know you want to discuss food allergy, an issue of importance to you.

• Be as flexible as possible with timing, although daytime hours are usually easier for candidates during an election.
