why write an LTE

Write a letter to the editor (LTE) if you want to make your opinion heard in a timely manner. You don’t need a lot of research, and your LTE can be brief and to-the-point - just 200-500 words! When time is of the essence, choose to write an LTE.

expert fact

You have a better chance at getting published if you keep it short and sweet (and don’t be afraid to be bold!)

secret tip

Politicians are in their jobs because of you! As Canadians, we have voted them into office to represent us. So they want to hear from you to learn what issues you feel are most important.

why use social media

Social media is a quick and easy way to speak up and tell your Member of Parliament (MP) that you care about immunization and access to vaccines. 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.

Tag the relevant people including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) and the Minister for International Development, Karina Gould (@KarinaGould).

Before the #COVID19 pandemic, the poverty rate for women was expected to decrease by 2.7% between 2019-2021. Now, the rate will increase by 9.1%. This widens gaps of inequality, especially for women of reproductive age. Together, we can #StopTheDeadlyDivide.
