Petitions

Petitions are an effective way for Canadians to voice their concerns in Canada’s Parliament.

A petition is used to draw attention to an issue of public interest or concern and to request that the House of Commons, the Government of Canada, a Minister of the Crown, or a Member of the House of Commons take some action.

Petitioners cannot directly present a petition to the House of Commons; only a Member of Parliament is able to do so. In order to have a petition posted on the House of Commons e-petition website and eventually presented in the House, it must be sponsored by a Member.

Petitions (and other mail) addressed to Parliament do not require postage. Please send petitions to (Member of Parliament’s Name), MP, House of Commons, Ottawa, ON K1A 0A6.

.

E-Petitions

Online petitions to the government are new in Canada, beginning in December 2015. Now you can sign BOTH an online petition and a written petition, and BOTH count. Please take the time to put your name on both the online and written petitions above, where possible.

Creating your own petition

If you want to write a petition, please consult the form and content guidelines set out by the House of Commons.
