Create Your Canada Contest

Want to do something TODAY to change Canada TOMORROW?

What is the Create Your Canada Contest?

Don is tabling a Private Member’s bill in Parliament and we want your help!

Send us your ideas for a new federal law to create a better Canada.

This is your chance to help guide Canada into the future you’d like to see.

Create Your Canada is an opportunity for constituents of all ages in Don’s riding to submit their ideas for a new federal law that would make Canada a better place.

We will select the best idea and draft it into a Private Member’s Bill (an actual piece of federal legislation).  Don will then fly the winner to Ottawa to watch as he formally introduces their bill in the House of Commons.

Flights and accommodation will be paid for by Don!

Don will also give a great tour of Parliament, including the Parliamentary Chamber, Sir John A. MacDonald’s first office, the Library of Parliament, and more.  We might even be able to arrange a quick photo with the Prime Minister!

Submission Guidelines

Entries can be submitted either individually or as a team of two. Only one entry per person will be considered.

To be eligible to win you must live in Vancouver Kingsway. If you are not sure if Don is your MP you can check by entering your postal code here:
