Democrats Abroad Canada is the official country committee of the DPCA for U.S. Democrats living in Canada. We are a 100% volunteer self-funded organization helping American citizens vote in U.S. elections through voter registration and keeping Americans informed on key issues. DemsAbroad Canada engages with members of Congress on issues affecting Americans living abroad, and strives to make information available to our members on topics such as Canada/US tax filing requirements, Estate Planning, and Operating a Corporation in Canada as an American Abroad. We also provide many opportunities to volunteer with our Get Out the Vote efforts!

Volunteers are always needed to help get out the vote, grow our base, and reach out to find new friends. To volunteer contact your local chapter or email our Volunteer Manager, Joann Sochor.

Our chapters across Canada offer a peer-group resource for U.S. citizens looking for assistance with voting, taxes, and passports plus social gatherings. Past chapter events include Women's Marches, Tax Seminars, Fourth of July parties, Thanksgiving dinners, Election and Debate Watch parties, Movie Nights, Trivia Quizzes, voter registration events and Pints & Politics pub meet-ups.

We also post voter and event information as well as current political news on multiple social media channels. Connect with us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter - and please share the information! Be sure to check our Events page and News page for additional updates on what we're up to.

For more information, email Erin Kotecki Vest, Canada Country Chair or call our information line call 647-707-1275.

Democrats Abroad Canada is self-funded, utilizing all funds raised to support our national and chapter Get Out the Vote efforts to reach the est. 650,000 - 1,000,000 Americans living across Canada. We are very grateful to all of our donors for your generous support.
