Like all citizens, Canadian Catholics have the responsibility to participate in the federal election, which has been called for October 21.

The 2019 Federal Election Guide, prepared by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), offers a reflection on key ethical and moral issues that voters, especially Catholics, may want to consider, such as:

  • respect for life

  • concern for the weakest among us

  • religious freedom and freedom of conscience

  • solidarity with Indigenous Peoples

  • support for families

  • funding for education, healthcare, housing

  • action on human trafficking

  • care for the environment

The five-page Guide has been formatted for online sharing and includes hyperlinks directing the reader to further resources on various issues important to Catholics.
