Electoral Reform

Electoral Reform


A national conversation about how we, as citizens, choose our representatives is an excellent opportunity to get Canadians engaged—to make democracy more accessible, more familiar, and more relevant to them.

With this report, the Samara Centre for Democracy aims to provide an entry point for Canadians seeking high-quality, nonpartisan information about the options for electoral reform. The Samara Centre commissioned the descriptions of five electoral systems from Stewart Prest, a postdoctoral fellow at Carleton University with a PhD in political science.
