why use social media

Social media is a quick and easy way to speak up and tell your candidates that you care about Canadian aid. Get public attention and let Canada know that they should continue to be a global leader.

expert fact

Twitter is a news-centric platform! 71% of Twitter users get their daily news from Twitter making it a great platform to share and spread your news.

secret tip

Politicians are people too! Don’t be afraid to use social media to reach out to them about the issues that are important to you. 94% of online Canadians are on at least 1 social media platform so it makes sense for politicians to be active on social as well.

Our #CanadiansVote call-to-action highlights the steps you can take to be an effective advocate during this federal election. You are extremely powerful in your ability to influence and inform electoral candidates about the impact of Canadian aid and importance of a just global recovery.  

Many of your local candidates will have social media accounts and will be engaging daily during the election. They want to hear from you directly so reach out to them on the platform they post on the most!  

Explain the importance of Canadian aid and prioritizing a global recovery from the pandemic this election by posting and tagging all your candidates and the party leaders who are running to be the next Prime Minister.  

Remember the election runs for a short time and many important issues will be discussed, so make sure a global recovery is a priority by being active on social media throughout the election.

If you meet with any of the candidates, post about the meeting on your social media. But remember, keep it non-partisan, you never know which candidate will be elected so it is important that you build relationships with them all.  

The ask: As a candidate, will you go on the record in support of increases to Canadian Aid to ensure a just recovery for all? 

You can also instantly let your candidates know that you care by sending the ready-made tweet below. Don't forget to add your candidate's account handle!
