Sign a Petition

There are a number of opportunities to be active politically and within your community. Browse the links below to see where you wish to make a difference! You can download a petition, have as many people as possible to sign it, and mail it – postage free – to either her Ottawa or Sidney offices. With as few as 25 signatures, Elizabeth can present your petition to the government in the House of Commons. You can review retired petitions as well. If there is an issue close to your heart that you do not yet see below, find out how to write your own petition. Now, you can also draft and sign electronic petitions for presentation in the House of Commons. At this site you can set up an account and draft an e-petition that all Canadians can sign. With the support of 5 other people and an MP sponsor, your petition will be publicly available for signature. With 500 signatures, Elizabeth can present it in the House of Commons. Here is a guide to e-petitions and a handy visual guide to creating your petition

Here are some of the recent e-petitions Elizabeth has sponsored. Please note that Elizabeth’s sponsorship of a petition simply provides an avenue for dialogue on an issue and should not be taken as an endorsement of its contents:
