Join Justin Trudeau and Liberals from across the country in Halifax on April 19-21, 2018 for the most open and inclusive Liberal National Convention in our history.
Atlantic Canada marked the beginning of an historic mandate for real change on election night in 2015, making Halifax a natural choice for our next Liberal National Convention as we continue to grow Canada’s Liberal movement before the 2019 election.
Halifax is known throughout the world for its commitment to innovation, the stunning beauty of its shores, and the warm hospitality of its people. I look forward to welcoming you along with Justin Trudeau and fellow Liberals from across Canada next spring.
See you there!
Liberal Party of Canada
As one of Canada’s fastest growing cities, Halifax is a city on the verge. We are a gutsy community of creatives, innovators, advocates, brewers, builders, fishers, newcomers, and more.
Everyday we push ourselves and each other to reach the Halifax we know is possible–and it’s closer now than ever before.
In 2015, for the first time in over two decades, Halifax went Liberal because our party’s vision for Canada aligned with our aspirations here at home: to be a community built for progressive change, to protect our environment as one of Canada’s primary coastal cities, and to grow an inclusive economy that supports our middle class and most vulnerable.
As that vision becomes a reality, I can’t wait to host Liberals from across the country to prepare for another remarkable win in 2019.
