What is a Provincial Constituency Association? How does this differ from an Electoral District Association or a Riding Association?
In Ontario, the riding level political unit is called a Constituency Association. A constituency association is an organization formed in an electoral district to support a provincial political party.
Federally, the same type of body is called an Electoral District Association (EDA).
This Constituency Association is in the provincial electoral district of Pickering--Uxbridge, and supports the Ontario Progressive Conservatives. Our Federal counterpart, which supports the Conservative Party of Canada, can be found here: https://www.pickeringuxbridgeconservative.com
A Constituency Association consists of:
- A board of directors
- elected each year at an Annual General Meeting of the membership;
- The members
- All individuals who are members of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, and live in the riding of Pickering--Uxbridge are automatically members of the Constituency Association.
