This free public service site allow readers to conveniently participate in two categories of letter writing campaigns 1) public and 2) private to various recipient groups selectable based on the content of the letter campaign. For those who may have difficulty in composing letters, volunteers will assist those seeking help with their letters.
Public letter campaigns
Public campaigns allow many individuals to send personalized letters to a specific group of recipients. Currently, recipients include MPP's and MP's in Ottawa. Public campaigns will have pre-formatted template letters for members of the public to conveniently send to the various selected recipients. Template letters and mailing lists will be already organized prepared for readers who simply have to fill in their contact information on the forms and the mailing program will handle the technical issues of sending the letter out to the applicable recipients. Those who have difficulty in writing their own letters will find this service very convenient.
If you have a campaign idea which you believe would be of interest to other Canadians and would like this site to post a public campaign, then contact us by email to arrange this. Send an email to email@example.com
Private letter campaigns
Private campaigns allow one individual to send their own personalized letter out to specific recipient groups such as MP’s or MPP’s. If you have a letter or need help in composing a letter that you believe would be of interest to any group of elected officials anywhere in Canada or to another specific group then contact us at the email below. A volunteer will contact you and help your voice be heard. Participants may also create their own recipient lists if they wish to send letters out to other groups such as municipal representatives of their own community or school boards, etc.
