Meeting Summary – Annual General Meeting of June 13–14, 2013
About the Advisory Committee of Political Parties
The Advisory Committee of Political Parties (ACPP) is a forum for information, consultation and advice on federal electoral matters between registered political parties and the Office of the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) of Canada. The role of the Committee is to advise the CEO on the administration of the Canada Elections Act (the Act) and the activities of Elections Canada. Its objectives are:
- to maintain an open dialogue between Elections Canada and registered political parties
- to foster mutually beneficial working relationships between Elections Canada and registered political parties
- to provide a responsive approach to emerging issues arising from the administration of the Act
- to hold discussions on the administration of elections and the implementation of new legislative provisions
- to gain a better understanding of the operational context of members' political parties, to seek a collaborative approach to developing new initiatives, e.g. electronic registration and voting.
The annual general meeting (AGM) is a regular convening held each calendar year with all registered political parties.
The objective of the annual general meeting of June 13 and 14, 2013, was to provide updates and information on key Elections Canada activities and initiatives, with particular emphasis on recent reports and preparations for the next federal general election in 2015.
