Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • Canada has a proud tradition of international leadership and providing real and valuable contributions to Election Observation Missions (EOMs) throughout the world;
  • Canadian participation in bilateral and multilateral EOMs demonstrates Canadian values and promotes respect for fundamental freedoms, equality, universality, and political pluralism as well as confidence, transparency, and accountability in democratic electoral processes;
  • According to Freedom House, 2017 marked the 12th consecutive year in which democracy has declined around the world;
  • Global Affairs Canada no longer has a mandate to support the deployment of Canadian observers in bilateral and multilateral EOMs;
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to restore Global Affairs Canada's mandate by allocating long-term, predictable funding to ensure Canadian participation in bilateral and multilateral Election Observation Missions and support for the democratic electoral process around the world.
