A New Deal for People:
New Democrats’ Commitments
to You

From our downtowns and suburbs to small towns and rural communities, people are worried about what the future holds – and how their children will make a life for themselves. The stress that families carry, the worry that keeps people up at night, and the suffocating pressure that people feel as costs keep tightening the family budget – it’s all caused by the choices that Liberal and Conservative governments have made to do less and less for people. If we want different results, we need to make different choices.

What we need now is the courage to act together. And that is exactly what New Democrats offer to Canadians. Our New Deal for People is our view of where our country can go over the next decade and our commitment to the real results that we will work to deliver for Canadians.

Making life more affordable for everyday people

People are getting squeezed as everything from housing to medication gets more expensive. We’ll put a stop to skyrocketing prices and make sure young people can build a good life.

Building an economy that works better for more people

People are finding it harder to keep up as wages flatline while the wealthiest people keep getting richer. New Democrats will build an economy where it’s easier to get a good job and earn a fair wage.

Protecting our air, land, and water, securing our future

Canada is facing a climate emergency and we need a government with the courage to make the right choices for our environment and for people.

Taking better care of each other

We’re committed to a Canada where we take better care of each other – and reinvest in the public services we all count on – like a new deal for health care that includes pharmacare for everyone.

Reconciliation at the heart of what we do

We’re committed to the important work of reconciliation in true and equal partnership with Indigenous communities. We’ll ensure Indigenous communities have safe housing and clean water, high quality education, and access to health care.

A new deal to build stronger, more vibrant communities

We can build safe and welcoming communities, invest in public infrastructure, support Canadian art and culture, and make sure people have access to the services they count on no matter where they live.

The courage to do what’s right

New Democrats are committed to a future where racism, discrimination, homophobia, and transphobia have no place, where we fight for reproductive justice and an end to gender-based violence, and where government treats people with the respect and dignity we all deserve.

Our fiscal approach

For too long, governments have chosen to strip away the services Canadians count on, while helping their rich friends and the biggest corporations. New Democrats will make the rich pay their fair share – and make the investments families need now.
