Elections BC

Elections BC administers the most comprehensive range of electoral legislation in Canada, with the Recall and Initiative Act being unique in the Commonwealth.

The Recall and Initiative Act allows voters in British Columbia to petition for the removal of a Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) between elections, or petition for the introduction of proposed new laws.

A summary of the act can be read at Elections BC webpage on this subject .

In November 2003, Elections BC developed a Grade 11 education kit entitled "Democracy in Action: Understanding and Exercising Your Electoral Rights " (nearly 1 MB download in pdf format)

Also available in hard copy from Elections BC. If you would like copies sent to your school, please call toll-free 1-800-661-8683 or email

In March 2001, Elections BC developed a Grade 5 education kit entitled "The Election Tool Kit" (500 kb download in pdf format)

The purpose of these education kits is to introduce youth to the basic principles of a provincial election. The main message to youth is that voting is important.

Elections BC is very proud of these education kits as it teaches the future voters in British Columbia about their democratic right to vote.  It also teaches students about their responsibility to learn about the election issues and their responsibility, when they become adults, to vote.

Yesterday, children across Canada were asked to select their most cherished UN right in a national "election" for the Rights of Youth, held to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of the Child. Despite a strong early showing, the "right to rest and play" placed fifth -- behind the rights to family, food and shelter, health, and education.

Things ran smoothly despite a write-in campaign from the "right to play hookey" crowd, which was strongly rumoured to be staging an upset.

"This historic experience will be a valuable lesson in democracy for the young Canadians who participate," said Jean Pierre Kingsley, Canada's Chief Election Officer. UNICEF posted up-to-the-minute reports on a Web site -- -- a clever, if grammatically flawed, gimmick. More ..
