The 2019 Canadian federal elections will take place on October 21. On this day, Canadians will elect Members of Parliament (MPs) across the country. MPs are elected to represent the views of their constituents in the legislative assembly. The policies of government are far-reaching. These decisions affect everyone, whether or not they have children in the school system. During federal elections, the Ontario Public School Boards' Association (OPSBA) advocates for non-partisan strategies to engage politicians on issues that affect public education and our children and youth.
