Pre-Budget Consultation Training
January 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Today, inflation, gas prices and grocery bills have been front of mind for many Canadians. Our brothers and sisters around the world have been struggling with food supply, job opportunities and increasing health concerns. The world needs Canada now more than ever and Canadians can change the outcome of those living in extreme poverty right in their own communities.
How? Parliamentarians from across the country will be hosting pre-budget consultations in your local area to ask YOUR thoughts on what you would like to see in the upcoming 2023 Federal Budget.
Climate change, conflict and covid scarring are direct examples how the world needs Canadians to take action and be part of a global movement to end extreme poverty. The Government of Canada wants to hear from you and we want to prepare you on how you can make a real impact so those around the world can live with dignity and opportunity.
We will offer a training session on how to best advocate to your Member of Parliament with someone with over a decade of experience on Parliament Hill. You can learn:
- The role of MPs in the Federal Budget and how the budget cycle works in Canada
- A short briefing on Canada’s international assistance investments in the Federal Budget
- Tactics on how best to get your message across to a Member of Parliament
- How to make an impactful intervention at a pre-budget consultation
