DA Canada leaders work with our regional chapters and the global Democrats Abroad movement to win elections for Democrats. We find US citizens and help them register to vote, support Americans requesting and returning ballots, and advocate for the concerns of Americans living outside the country. With the midterms fast approaching, we're looking for leaders excited to prove that Americans in Canada can make the difference in key races.


Nominations open February 25, 2022 and will close at 11:59 PM ET, Wednesday, March 16, 2022.
