Joliette General Meeting – POSTPONED

As always, our first priority is to ensure the safety and health of our supporters, volunteers, staff team, and all Canadians we engage with, including at events. 

Out of an abundance of caution and after discussion and input from EDA board members, the General Meeting of the Joliette Federal Liberal Association, originally scheduled for March 17, has been postponed.

The details of the rescheduled meeting will be communicated to you as soon as possible. 

In the mean time, I know that our party’s communications and field teams are continuing to work to ensure that our staff, volunteers, and supporters across Canada are provided with information and resources about COVID-19, steps that can be taken to prevent its potential spread, and the Liberal government’s comprehensive action to protect the health and safety of Canadians.

Thanks for your support and involvement,

Sam Bhalesar-Saran
Party Secretary, Liberal Party of Canada

As a Registered Liberal, you’re invited to attend the General Meeting of the Joliette Federal Liberal Association.

As you may know, these general meetings for your local Liberal Electoral District Association (EDA) give us all an exciting chance to build up our local team for the year ahead.  Table Officers and Directors will be chosen by you, and fellow Liberals in your area.

This is an exciting time to be involved in the Liberal Party of Canada, as we work together to support positive politics and Justin Trudeau’s plan to invest in the middle class.

Together, we’re continuing to build the most open and inclusive movement in Canadian politics – and connecting with our neighbours and communities is essential as we move forward and work to build a better Canada — for everyone.  With leadership that brings Canadians together, the Liberal government has cut taxes for 9 million middle class Canadians, offered real help for Canadian families with the new Canada Child Benefit, and taken important steps to fight climate change, grow our economy, and renew Canada’s engagement in the world. And there’s so much more to do.

The meeting will be held at Château Joliette, Bach room, 450 Saint Thomas St, Joliette, QC J6E 3R1, on March 17th at 7:00 pm.

The EDA Board of Directors is often the first point of contact that Canadians will have with the Liberal Party of Canada. Serving on your EDA Board is a great way to develop your skills, to cultivate relationships, and to engage with community leaders – regardless of how much or how little experience you may have with political engagement.

Members of the board will be responsible for engaging Canadians at the grassroots level, hosting events, fundraising, and most importantly, building towards the next federal election.
