  4. Fair Vote Canada
    Media Profile in Sources

    Resource Type: Organization
    Representing over 55,000 Canadians, Fair Vote Canada is a grassroots, multi-partisan citizens' campaign for voting reform. We promote the introduction of an element of proportional representation into elections for all levels of government and throughout civil society.

    In a democracy, every voter's voice should be heard in Parliament. The share of votes the electorate cast for a party's candidates should match the share of seats a party is awarded, so majority governments will have a mandate from a true majority of voters. Those are defining principles of Proportional Representation, and those are the principles Fair Vote Canada endorses.
