Run for Office: A Non-Partisan Training Program for Asian Leaders

Interested in running for your country? Representation Matters

Run for It! is a non-partisan training and coaching program dedicated to supporting Asian Canadian participation and representation across Canada at all levels of elected public office including federal, provincial, municipal and school board trustees.

With condensed sessions designed with a practical and best practice approach, candidates running for elected office as well as key leaders involved in campaigns will be enabled to hit the ground running. Each session module provides essential tools and critical development to build confidence in all aspects of driving and positioning an election campaign for winning results.

Who should apply for the program? Asian Canadians who are running for elected office, campaign leaders and allies (campaign workers) who are supporting their candidates to win.

The sessions will run on Tuesday February 22, Thursday February 24, 2022 at 7:00 – 9:00 pm, and Saturday February 26, 2022 at 12:00 to 5:00pm, all Eastern time.
