On this page, you can sign petitions and learn how to create them.
A petition is one of the most direct ways to participate in democracy. Petitions can influence policy and legislation, and are a means of bringing public concerns to the attention of parliament. You create and sponsor the petition, and a Member of Parliament will present it to the House of Commons on behalf of the petitioners. The government is responsible for issuing a written response to the petition within forty days of it being presented.
Members of Parliament should present petitions whether they agree with them or not. Presenting a petition should not be considered an endorsement by the Member of Parliament.
