DA Vancouver (DA-V) is a chapter of DA Canada, the official country committee for US Democrats living in Canada. We are helping US citizens living in British Columbia register to vote for US elections and keeping them informed on important issues. We have a wonderfully active community of enthusiastic voters, members, and volunteers. And we're always looking for more. If you're interested in getting involved and putting your skills to good use, reach out to us. We're always looking for dedicated volunteers.

Hundreds of 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 and DO deliver the difference in close elections.

Go to VoteFromAbroad.org today to register for your ballot – every year.

Past DA-V events include the Women's Marches and March for Our Lives at Jack Poole Plaza, Fourth of July picnics, Thanksgiving dinners, US tax seminars, voter registration events, and pub nights. Check our Events and News pages for information and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to stay informed on upcoming events, voter information, and the latest news impacting Americans living abroad. 

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


Democratically yours,

    Upcoming Events

    Fourth of July Barbeque at Trout Lake

     
    Come join us as we celebrate the Fourth of July (and Canada Day as well, if you're so inclined) in the best way: BBQ in the park!
     
    We look forward to our first big opportunity in a long time to connect as a chapter in person. Come by and grab some BBQ, chat with other DA members and our chapter leads, and enjoy the (fingers crossed) beautiful Vancouver summer weather.
     
    Hotdogs and hamburgers, with vegetarian options, will be offered while supplies last. We will provide plates, buns, and condiments, but feel free to bring any side dishes you would like to share. Also, this will be the first year that we are permitted to consume alcohol in the park, so bring your beverage of choice.
     
    We will set up at the picnic shelter beginning at 4pm, but feel free to meet up or spend time in the park beforehand.
     
    Directions: Picnic Shelter is located on the Southeast corner of the park, on E 19th Ave between Victoria Dr and Nanaimo St. Parking lot is adjacent, with nearby street parking. Accessible by public transit from Commercial-Broadway Station, Nanaimo Station, and multiple bus routes.
