Request a meeting with your MP

As a constituent, your opinion makes a real impact.

Home / Advocacy / Requesting a meeting with your MP

When reaching out to your MP’s office to request a meeting, remember that their schedules
can be busy. It’s better to propose a concise 15- or 20-minute meeting or a phone or video
call than to be turned down for requesting an hour of their time.

A call from a constituent makes a real impact. Note that all MPs should be making themselves
available to meet, so be sure to mention that you live in the riding when you are emailing/
calling to request a meeting.

Make sure your request is polite and friendly, as well as non-partisan. Volunteers are reminded
that as we are still navigating COVID-19, it is important to note that many meetings may be
held via phone call or virtual meeting platform.
