How much time is this going to take? How much money?

Answer

Being one of the leaders who are shaping the future of the Ontario Liberal Party is not a small commitment, but it's also not huge.

1) You will need to spend time in October and November 2019 signing up members (we recommend at least 20 people). Perhaps your network is large and this will be easy, or maybe this is going to take time. Likely it will mean getting in touch with people in-person, holding 1 or 2 small gatherings, and following-up.

2) There will be a bit of paperwork to fill out in January.

3) You will need to spend time in early February getting your members out to vote at the Leadership Election Meetings on either February 8th or 9th, 2020. And you will need to be at the voting location on one of those days, likely for the entire day.

4) If you are elected as a delegate, you will need to register for and attend the Leadership Convention on March 6th and 7th. This will mean:

Paying the registration fee of either $499 (regular) or $249 (youth/seniors)

Getting to the convention in Mississauga

Being at the convention for the entire day and evening on March 7, 2020 (March 6th in the afternoon is recommended but not mandatory as no voting will occur)

As a campaign will support delegates to get to the convention. This will look like personalized fundraising pages to help you raise money from friends/family if needed, organizing ride sharing, and giving you the information you need to take off work or other commitments. We also expect to make some funds available to support travel/accommodations/food for people who are not able to make it otherwise.
