For #elxn44 we conducted research and sought input and nominations from parties, candidates, environmental organizations and Canadians.

We asked about candidates’ knowledge, experience and leadership in their communities, workplaces and parties for the environment and environmental justice. We also looked at winnability, based on the past three elections and current polls. Endorsements are determined by the GreenPAC Expert Panel, an independent group of provincial and national environmental specialists with no party affiliations. The Panel focuses on track record and does not look at party platforms, campaign commitments or debate performances.

The Expert Panel makes the final decisions on who GreenPAC endorses during our provincial and federal endorsement election campaigns. The Panel is made up of credible, independent members who have no ties to political parties and are not on the payroll of any environmental NGOs. Panel members reflect a diversity of views from various parts of the country and areas of expertise. Meet our 2021 Federal Endorsement Expert Panel!
