Welcome to the 2018 Liberal Policy Resolution Online Forum. This new forum was developed to engage Canadians in a collaborative discussion about the 39 policy resolutions submitted by grassroots Liberals from coast to coast to coast - the most open policy development process in Canadian politics.

This process is open to any Registered Liberal who wishes to help shape the future of our movement through constructive conversations and the exchange of ideas. The online comment period will remain open until February 14, 2018, and online voting will open from March 4 to March 18. Results of the online voting and the top 30 policy resolutions will be published on March 26.

These top 30 resolutions will be debated at the 2018 Liberal National Convention, and 15 will be prioritized. A resolution is not a passed policy of the party until it has earned majority support as a priority at the 2018 Liberal National Convention.

If you have any questions about the policy process, please email policy@liberal.ca.

The 2018 National Liberal Convention will welcome thousands of supporters from across Canada for innovative campaign training, policy discussions, special keynote speakers, and the election of the party's next National Board. Over the last 10 years, Liberal conventions have been hosted in Vancouver, Ottawa, Montreal, and Winnipeg – and this will be the first national convention to be hosted under the new, open Liberal Party constitution passed in 2016. And we’ve got more good news: The Liberal Party of Canada’s National Board has also significantly lowered the registration fees to encourage as many Liberals as possible to attend from across the country – including the lowest fees in decades for young Canadians. The official convention program will start early Thursday evening (April 19) and will wrap up on Saturday night (April 21). Commission General Meetings will be held on Thursday afternoon, and certain campaign-related sessions may also be hosted on Sunday morning. Visit 2018.liberal.ca for more information!

Hearing ideas from Canadians is what keeps our Liberal movement strong, growing, and innovative – and that wouldn’t be possible without your involvement.

The platform that Justin Trudeau and the Liberal team presented to Canadians in 2015 was based on a long thread of hundreds of thousands of conversations, and as we look toward the next election in 2019, new conversations and policy ideas will play an important role in shaping the future direction of our party and our country.
