The New Democratic Party of Canada is here to represent all Canadians and is committing to improving the lives of all Canadians. Our candidate in the Surrey-Centre District was one of first confirmations and momentum is building towards the next Federal Election this October! 


The Surrey-Centre Electoral District Association (EDA) is looking for people who are genuinely interested in making a difference in their lives, their community and their country. Our goal is to advocate for the people of Surrey and ensure that there is positive and beneficial improvement for our community.


We want people of every skill and ability to join us in our journey to representing the community on the forefront, not the back bench. You don’t have to be extrovert to make a difference and we encourage individuals to contact us and learn more about the role you can play.


Positions we are recruiting for:

- Volunteer Recruitment Coordinators/Assistants

- Community Liaisons

- Fundraising Coordinator/Assistants

- Public Relations Coordinator/Assistants

- Campaign Manager

- Election Day Coordinator/Assistants

- Telephone Canvassing

- Door Canvassing


Skills and Abilities

~ Caring – must genuinely care about your community and country.

~ Respectful – must understand that we all have different opinions but our core values are to enhance the lives of all Canadians.

~ Commitment – when we make a promise, we deliver. When we commit to a time, we show up. 

~ Honesty – you are willing to be honest and straight forward. When something concerns us, we share it.

~ Confidential – be willing to undertake a confidentiality agreement in certain roles.


Your Benefit

In addition to doing something to help the democratic processes of your country, we hope to mentor a group of individuals who are seeking opportunities in the public sphere. The EDA commits to creating networking opportunities that will enhance exposure through events and interactions, allowing for sharing of learning and experiences with successful politicians and public servants. Students in various programs maybe eligible for volunteer hours towards their programs.


Our candidate and executive team have extensive experience in Human Resources. We are committed to creating a structured learning plan that allows each volunteer to walk away with experience they can apply to their own lives. Please let us know if you would like to take part in this aspect.


For experienced volunteers, we hope to gather information and resources you need to manage

the campaign efforts. Preparing in advance so that your efforts can be fully utilized.


Who Can Volunteer?

- Anyone! Citizens, residents and future Canadians can all take part in making history in the next election.

- We are looking for volunteers from all backgrounds and experiences.

- Our only requirement is that your residency in Canada can be legally verified (i.e. citizenship, permanent residency, work or student visas)


Why should I volunteer for you?

Simply put, we are different. We have taken a very progressive and pragmatic approach to recruiting volunteers.


We want each and every voter that elects us to be proud of their decision. Just as importantly, we want every volunteer to realize that they are with us as long as they desire and we are there for them. We will not just remember you during our campaign period, but you will have direct access to your EDA president and (hopefully) your NDP elected MP after October 21, 2019. We are building relationships and we are going to change the way Surrey Centre is represented. That’s our promise and you can hold us to that promise!
