2018 Convention

The 2018 National Liberal Convention will welcome thousands of supporters from across Canada for innovative campaign training, policy discussions, special keynote speakers, and the election of the party's next National Board.

Over the last 10 years, Liberal conventions have been hosted in Vancouver, Ottawa, Montreal, and Winnipeg – and this will be the first national convention to be hosted under the new, open Liberal Party constitution passed in 2016.

And we’ve got more good news: The Liberal Party of Canada’s National Board has also significantly lowered the registration fees to encourage as many Liberals as possible to attend from across the country – including the lowest fees in decades for young Canadians.

The official convention program will start early Thursday evening (April 19) and will wrap up on Saturday night (April 21). Commission General Meetings will be held on Thursday afternoon, and certain campaign-related sessions may also be hosted on Sunday morning.
