Elections Part I: Do you vote?

First in a series about the upcoming federal election

A federal election is probably going to take place this fall, scheduled for October 19. Voting for any level of government — federal, provincial or municipal — in Canada is a complicated issue for many of us.

The relationship between Indigenous people in Canada and governments has never been an easy one, nor has it been equal. It’s a tough history, and many people who identify as Indigenous don’t feel the Canadian government represents them at all.

And so a lot of us don’t vote.

But voting is important. It helps decide who makes some pretty big decisions that affect all of our lives.

Have you ever voted before? Will you cast a ballot on election day this fall?
