One of Elections Canada's key roles is to tell Canadians about the electoral process. This includes registration procedures and the identification required to vote. Elections Canada conducts a national Voter Information Campaign before and during federal elections to give Canadians all the information they need on when, where and ways to register and vote.
The agency's national campaign is designed for the general population, but also targets groups who face barriers to participating in elections: new Electors (youth and new Canadian citizens), Indigenous electors and electors with disabilities. Read more below about the services for each of these target groups, and the services for the Jewish community during the 2019 federal election.
