CARP Election Forum @ CIGI Campus Auditorium
Sep 3 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

CARP is the national leader in advancing the interests of Canadians as we age. Waterloo Region is home to more than 3,000 CARP members. Like many older Canadians, they are politically aware, and they are more likely to vote. To be fully informed before casting their ballot, they’d like to hear directly about each party’s policies.

On the evening of Thursday, September 3, CARP Waterloo Region members will gather in the CIGI Campus Auditorium, 67 Erb Street West, Waterloo, for the CARP Election Forum. The Forum will be live-webcast by CIGI, our venue sponsor, making the program available to those CARP members who want to view it at home.

CARP Waterloo Region would like to invite each of the four major national political parties to participate in the Forum by having one of its candidates on stage to address our members on their party’s policies.

The Forum is intended to allow each political party to “put its best foot forward”. The event is not structured as a “candidates’ debate”.

The preliminary event agenda is:

  • Doors open 6:00 pm
  • Social hour in the CIGI Campus Foyer 6:30 to 7:15 with coffee/cookies
  • formal event in the Auditorium 7:15 to 8:30
  • mingling afterward in the Foyer till 9:00 when the
    event ends
