Between 2005 and 2018, British Columbia conducted three referendums on electoral reform, at a cost of between $15 million and $20 million. The referendums were proposed by different governing parties, were administered quite differently, asked different questions, and even had their outcomes determined by different standards. And yet, each referendum produced a result in favour of the status quo.

In this one-day workshop, join Dr. Keith Archer, former Chief Electoral Officer of British Columbia, to examine electoral reform through the lens of BC’s three recent referendums on the topic, and use this material to reflect on the future of electoral reform in Canada.
