Good Morning OAFB Members,

The provincial election is officially upon us!

This is an incredibly important election, with many parties running on platforms that could significantly impact those we serve.

To assist our network and help inform the public on each party’s platform, the OAFB has created the attached report:

“Ontario Election 2018 Report Card: A summary of Party Stances on Issues Affecting Food Bank Clients”

Alongside the report, we have created a handout that you are welcome to provide to those visiting your food bank or your community at large, as well as ‘shareables’ to post on your social media pages. We will be providing these resources to you in the upcoming Member Monday.

As a friendly reminder: registered charities must remain non-partisan; however, we can provide information on each party’s platform, as well as encourage everyone to vote on June 7th, 2018.

The OAFB will be actively monitoring the news and announcements made by the candidates over the upcoming weeks, and updating the documents accordingly. Please keep an eye out for these updates.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Thank you for your assistance in sharing this report and information on how each party plans to address some of the challenges faced by those we serve, if elected.

Kindest regards,
