Working towards April 4th, the MVA Provincial Election Assembly

We have exciting news as we progress toward the April 4th Metro Vancouver Alliance Provincial Election Assembly.

On Saturday February 18, 2017 over 80 delegates from MVA member institutions gathered at the Sarah McLachlan School of Music to share the results of listening campaigns in preparation for the Provincial Election Assembly.

Representatives from 35 MVA organizations shared the top challenges facing their members and determined priorities for the election.  Delegates had an opportunity to meet with different organizations, finding common ground through shared stories and experiences.

After lively discussion, 4 priorities were identified to take forward to the Provincial Election Assembly on April 4, 2017.

  • Healthcare
  • Housing
  • Income Justice
  • Transit

Research Action Teams on each issue will kick off next week to define specific proposals to put forward to the party leaders at the assembly. If you are interested in joining a team, email info@metvanalliance.org

And just a reminder for those of you on the Program, Floor, Logistics, Turnout, or Publicity Teams, the first All Teams Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday February 28th, 5PM at the Diocese of New Westminster Synod Office, 1410 Nanton Street at Granville Street.

We will have to work quickly over the next month to be prepared for our April 4th event so now is the time to step up. 

A big thank you to Sarah McLachlan School of Music and Terra Breads for your support.
