Frequently Asked Questions

  • When and where is the Liberal Party of Canada’s National Convention?

    The 2021 Liberal National Convention will be held online, with events taking place from April 8-10 – featuring virtual keynotes, policy discussions, innovative training sessions, and workshops.

  • What are the registration fees?

    The Liberal Party of Canada has once again worked to keep the registration fees near record lows, to encourage as many Liberals as possible to join from across the country – and registration fees have been kept low to help as many Canadians participate as possible. You must pay your registration amount when you register.

    If you are not a Victory Fund or Laurier Club donor, you must sign up (join the Laurier Club, donate to the Victory Fund) prior to registering in order to benefit from the reduced fees.

  • Is my registration fee eligible for a tax receipt?

    Yes. A receipt for income tax purposes will be issued to all registrants for an eligible contribution amount. A portion of your registration fee is considered a donation to the Liberal Party of Canada and is therefore tax-deductible and entitles you to a tax credit. The size of your tax credit depends on the amount you donate in 2021.

  • How will my registration information be used and protected?

    Protecting the information of the Canadians with whom we engage is a foremost priority for the party in all of our operations, organizing, and communications – and of course, that includes our 2021 Liberal National Convention.

    As one part of that commitment, the Liberal Party of Canada has a clear and stringent privacy policy in place which is designed to protect individual Canadians’ private information by ensuring its confidentiality, security and accuracy. This policy can be viewed here: www.liberal.ca/privacy

    In certain circumstances, the party may also share convention attendees’ registration information with our 2021 Liberal National Convention hosting partners, such as event production partners. Candidates for the National Board of the party or the National Executive of the party’s commissions may also receive lists of eligible voters, and the temporary use of those lists is strictly governed by our privacy policy and bylaws.
