Rural BCBC voters BC flagBC familyUrban BCElections BC


  • The BC government is about to hold a referendum on electoral reform. What are the questions it should be asking voters to decide on?
  • What is proportional representation? What are the concrete options for reform and what guidance can experts give in choosing among those options?
  • How should the government be involving the public?


The BC Symposium on PR is a gathering of election reform experts from British Columbia and across Canada, who are meeting in Vancouver to discuss the upcoming referendum and make recommendations to the government.


The symposium will take place on February 16-18, 2018, and will culminate in an open session to which the public is invited:
