DA Toronto (DATO) is a chapter of DA Canada, the official country committee for US Democrats living in Canada.

We help US citizens vote in US elections through voter registration and keeping people informed on key issues. We also have lots of opportunities to volunteer with our Get Out the Vote efforts!

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.

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

Past Toronto events include Women's Marches, Tax Seminars, Fourth of July parties, Thanksgiving dinners, Election and Debate Watch parties, voter registration events and pub meet-ups.  We are active in-person and online as much as possible.  Please check our Events page and News page for more information.

We also post voter and event information as well as current political news on social media. Please follow us on Instagram and our Facebook page and share!

If you have questions or would like to help with Democrats Abroad Toronto, please contact us.

Democratically yours,

Their special events focus on books, songs and include lots of laughs to show that Reading is FUN-damental! They especially want to support families with LGBTQ2S parent(s) and gender variant children, and read culturally diverse books, by providing a supportive and inclusive environment focused on fun. Everyone is welcome!

    Youth Spoken Word Performance with CANVAS Arts Action Programs

    CANVAS

    Co-Sponsored by Democrats Abroad Canada and
    Democrats Abroad Toronto LGBTQ+ Caucus

    In the past year, the world has seen how spoken word and poetry can be a powerful tool for advocacy, a way of communicating and expressing pain and joy, and an outlet for healing. 

    On January 20, 2021, the world listened as Amanda Gorman’s presented her moving inaugural poem, which moved us to reflect on our world and democracy from the eyes of a young activist. 

    Democrats Abroad Toronto is excited to partner with CANVAS Arts Action Programs (CANVAS), a Toronto-based non-profit that works to prevent gender-based and sexual violence, homophobia and transphobia for a special spoken word performance. CANVAS uses interactive, arts programs to educate on gender equity, consent, and LGBTQ2S+ inclusion in schools, summer camps, communities and workplaces. 

    Join us for this special performance, open to members and their families of all ages!

    This event will be part of the overall Democrats Abroad Global LGBTQ+ Caucus Virtual Pride 12-hour Marathon. Click here to learn more about various activities, celebrations, stories, and films being streamed across the globe for this exciting day-long event.
