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!

In 2016, only 33,000 Americans living in Canada cast a ballot in the General Election. With 15-days remaining, 75% of the members of DemsAbroad Canada have engaged with requesting a ballot in this critical election. Take a moment to request your ballot to be a part of the blue tsunami from Canada at VoteFromAbroad.org.

In 2020 it is critical we collectively do all that is possible to encourage the estimated 650k - 1m Americans in Canada to vote! Hundreds of American citizen volunteers across Canada are working to educate all eligible U.S. voters on their right to vote and how to get their ballots to vote in every election. That includes Canadians who were born in the U.S. and those born in Canada to an American parent(s), who therefore have the right to vote. Americans living in Canada CAN deliver the difference in close elections. To volunteer, email Randi Weitzner, Chapter Chair or email the DA Canada Volunteer Manager, Jamey Shick.

Go to VoteFromAbroad.org today to register for your ballot.

The Montreal Chapter posts events and news items on this page and on our Facebook page.  Please scroll down to the bottom of the page to see what is happening and RSVP for events that are of interest to you.  We are always open to hearing from our members about ideas for helping Americans connect with each other in Montreal and the surrounding communities.

    Global Voter Assistance: October 25th

    Did you know every eligible American living  abroad can vote in U.S. elections this year? 

    Do you have questions about how to vote? Click  the chat bubble at the bottom of this screen and we'll help you find the answers.  

    Join us October 25th, or any Sunday(24hrs), Tuesday, Thursday & Friday (noon-4pm) and Saturday (2am-10am) till November U.S. Eastern time to talk to a volunteer LIVE on Zoom about questions you have about voting from abroad.

    More information: The easiest way to request  your ballot is at VoteFromAbroad.org. It takes  just a few minutes to complete your form and  send it in to the US state where you last lived. If  you've never voted from abroad, the website will guide you step by step. In most cases it’s pretty simple. But if you’re new to overseas voting, or if you haven’t done it in a while, you may have additional questions. That’s why we’ll be here every Sunday until election day to help.

    If you can’t make it any Sunday, you can always email us at helpdesk@votefromabroad.org or send in your question through our online help bubble, and a volunteer will get back to you promptly.
