ISAC Election Kit and Candidate Questions
Ontario Election 2014
Election Day is June 12. But so far none of Ontario's political parties are talking about the issues of poverty or inequality that so many Ontarians live with every day.
That's where you come in. Whether you're living on a low income or you work to support people who do, you can:
And to help you do this, we've prepared an Election Kit and Questions for Candidates.
- make sure you and/or the people you work with are able to vote
- ask candidates what they will do about these issues if they get elected
- raise these issues at all candidates' meetings
- send a letter to the editor or use other forms of media to get these issues on the public agenda.
Go to our Ontario Election 2014 webpage to get these materials.
The Questions for Candidates address issues related to Ontario Works (OW), the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP), and other income security programs and policies.
We're also using our webpage to share materials prepared by other groups on other subjects, like housing and issues facing injured workers. Check back frequently as we upload materials throughout the election campaign.
The political parties and their candidates in your local area want to secure your support during the campaign.
So before you vote, use our materials to get involved and find out what they're going to do to make life better for low-income Ontarians.
