This Workshop is devoted to an analysis of Canada’s electoral system. What works, what doesn’t, and what needs to be changed?

The five “building blocks” of “Canada’s Electoral Democracy” will be examined over the course of the two days: The Franchise; Electoral Districting; Voter Enumeration/Registration; Electoral Administration; and the First-Past-the-Post method of voting.

Students will learn about the changes that each of the five elements of Canada’s electoral system have undergone and, where appropriate, will be introduced to comparative reference points in order to assess how Canadian electoral democracy fairs in relation to electoral systems abroad.
