Leadership in the long term

Canada needs a new generation of political and business leaders who can look beyond short-term votes and profits. Business was at the centre of shaping Canada’s economic policy from 1984-2000 – a 15-year span of fiscal progress. Its absence since then has already begun to damage Canada’s short-term future. In time, it will risk its long-term future, too. Business leadership in the narrow pursuit of its self-interest does not work (witness the last decade on the pipeline front), but business is needed to make things happen. Someone has to convey to politicians and public officials what drives the private sector. And the private sector has to be reminded of its social responsibility.

Canadians must start to think about and discuss their future. Staying the course of the last decade will not do it. Politics and political leaders are usually lagging indicators. Fresh policy leadership on competitive growth will almost certainly have to come from the private sector – journalists, academics and business people. It will also need public officials at their best.

Building our party is a team effort, and winning elections takes all of us. If you share our beliefs, values and principles, then you can become more directly involved by becoming a member. We’ve got important races to win in 2015 and 2020, and the work has already begun. We have to win our majority in the House of Commons, and ensure NCPC victories across Canada. All members play a crucial role in helping to achieve these vital goals successfully.

What can you gain from volunteering in election campaigns?

Volunteers quickly learn how to sell an idea or a concept. “It’s something you have to do a lot no matter what industry you end up in,” says Miller. “So whether you’re selling a candidate’s platform or if you’re selling a product or a concept to your boss, you’re still employing the same skills.” Campaign volunteers also have the opportunity to grow their network and meet people from a variety of sectors in a short, intense amount of time. “There are tons of volunteers and people from all different business sectors who get involved during elections,” says Miller. “Just being in the presence of these individuals and networking could lead to other opportunities outside.”

Devenir un membre du PCNC est une de beaucoup de façons à être impliqué dans le processus politique. En fait, vous avez beacoup a gagner en devenant un membre.

Becoming a member of our political party offers many great opportunities and benefits to make your voice heard and mobilize changes in government. Building our party is a team effort, and winning elections takes all of us. If you share our beliefs, values and principles, then you can become more directly involved by becoming a member. We’ve got important races to win in 2015 and 2020, and the work has already begun. We have to win our majority in the House of Commons, and ensure NCPC victories across Canada. All members play a crucial role in helping to achieve these vital goals successfully.

Nous sommes à présent dans le processus d'enregistrer notre Parti politique pour participer aux élections générales fédérales ou à l'élection partielle avec l'Officier Électoral En chef du Canada. Cette exigence doit garantir qu'un Parti demandant l'enregistrement a une adhésion actuelle d'au moins 250 électeurs. Notre Parti doit soumettre les formes de déclaration originales des membres a Élections Canada.

What will I do as a volunteer?

Speak directly to voters: There are different routes that you can take. Your can go to the office and make phone calls or canvass, which includes knocking on doors, collecting information, and registering and speaking to voters."

Reach out to other students:  You can do something more unconventional. A lot of students host house parties to engage political discussion. Another event is a 'Dorm Storm,' where a lot of students get together and hand out fliers in the dorms about the campaign's issues.

Employ your digital skills: Young people bring a sense of energy to campaigns. When it comes to social media, I think that they have skill sets that maybe older folks in the campaign may not have.

What is the time commitment?

Create your own schedule: "It's up to the volunteer," says Alejandra. "If you want to spend an hour per week at an office, or an hour a week with friends tabling on campus, that's an option. If you want to spend six or seven hours a week working for the campaign, that's an option too."

"People in high school are confined by their class schedule and limitations of whether they have a car, but there's always an abundance of work on political campaigns, so the sky's the limit," says Alex. "I think the more time that they put in, the more that they are able to get out of the experience."

Why should I volunteer?

To develop an understanding of the political system and your personal stances,  how political campaigns work and how they effect change in government, as an opportunity to learn what others have to say and refine your political beliefs. Also, you'll feel a sense of accomplishment from working for a campaign and getting to experience so many different things, from knocking on doors to making phone calls or working in headquarters. To make an impact regardless of your age.


We are presently in the process of registering our political party to participate in federal general election or by-election with the Chief Electoral Officer of Canada.

  • Encouraging local leaders to run for office through programs such as our comprehensive campaign platform; 
  • Raising awareness about the impact of women's under-representation; 
  • Communicating and implementing NCPC's goals and activities through our dynamic website, regular newsletters, media releases, Twitter and Facebook activity, and by hosting minor or major events.

NCPC Membership is the key that opens the door to real changes in government through a powerful community of other like-minded individuals, resources, and support throughout leadership and management of our staff and volunteers. There is a special energy generated when like-minded individuals come together and form a community.
