Run for Office

With Hollyhock Leadership Institute

June 23 - 27, 2021

Sign-up to be notified when registration opens for this 2021 program.

Have you ever thought of running for office? Have you wondered what it takes? What it might mean for you?

Run for Office will bring people from across Canada together for four days to learn how to build an effective campaign and explore the realities of supporting, running, and holding public office as people from communities who have been traditionally excluded from electoral politics.

Join a group of progressives with an interest in running for office, or working in auxiliary roles, at all levels of government in Canada. Gain practical campaign skills, refine personal narratives, discover the personal and emotional realities of being or supporting a candidate, and begin building a campaign plan. All this is done with a network of past and present politicians, campaign staffers, and change makers.

Past presenters have included Olivia Chow, Bowinn Ma, Nadine Nakagawa, Sharmarke Dubow, and Ginger Gosner-Myers. 

We need to engage and mobilize more people from under-represented communities to enter the political arena to represent our voices. I came out of this program with tangible skills and the idea that running for office is very possible! – Kristin Cheung
