Lower the voting age and give young people the power to make a difference!

Help young Canadians have their say in our electoral process.

NDP MP Taylor Bachrach has introduced a private members bill to lower the voting age to 16, giving more young people the power to make a difference in their communities.

    Many 16 and 17 year olds are informed, passionate and engaged in their communities. From climate activists to essential workers, younger Canadians are integral to the development of Canadian society.

    That’s why NDP MP Taylor Bachrach has introduced a private members bill to lower Canada’s voting age to 16 – just as Austria, Scotland and Wales have successfully done.

    Whether it’s housing, health care, or the climate emergency, today’s challenges have a big impact on younger Canadians. They deserve a seat at the table.

    And when we empower young people, we create a stronger democracy and a better Canada!
