Team Trudeau Nominations Process

This is an important movement to shape our future for the better — and Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada are the only team with a plan to support Canadians through this global health and economic crisis, and build back better with bold action on health, the economy, the environment, and equality.

Whenever the next campaign eventually arrives, we’re ready to re-elect our dedicated Liberal team in Parliament, and continue to elect even more talented, diverse, and hardworking community leaders as new Liberal MPs to help keep Canada moving forward.

We are pleased to announce the details of our new Team Trudeau nominations process. This new process will help achieve important new engagement with Canadians, while ensuring that nomination meetings and processes have the flexibility to move forward in a manner that is safe and in accordance with public health guidance.

Our team of Liberal MPs will be nominated again provided they meet the criteria of candidates and achieve an increase of at least 10 additional grassroots monthly donors with the Victory Fund.

Currently-unheld EDAs will also meet important standards for community engagement before local Liberals may proceed to nominate a new Team Trudeau candidate:

  • Before any nomination meeting is called, the EDA must be able to document a thorough search for potential contestants from communities or backgrounds who are underrepresented in Parliament — including but not limited to candidates who are women; Black, Indigenous, or people of colour; LGBTQ2; people with disabilities; and marginalized communities.
  • have at least 150 Registered Liberals in EDAs where the Liberal candidate was the runner-up in 2019.
  • have at least 50 Registered Liberals in EDAs where the Liberal candidate was anything other than the runner-up in 2019, or where there was a margin greater than 20%.

Given we are just one year from the last campaign, our new nomination process also works to streamline the green light process for 2019 candidates seeking to stand again as the Liberal candidate in their communities.

A strong focus on community engagement and inclusive politics builds on the Liberal Party’s commitment to building the most open movement in Canadian politics. While the other parties still charge fees to join and participate in party affairs, the Liberal Party of Canada is the only federal political party that is open for Canadians to join at no cost.

The new Team Trudeau nominations process also reflects extensive consultation with Registered Liberals, caucus members, past candidates, and our party’s EDAs, Commissions, and Provincial/Territorial Boards.

If you have any questions or need more information, please don’t hesitate to email nominations@liberal.ca or visit liberal.ca/nomination-faq — and stay tuned to this page for further details.
