Sample invitations for your Canadian federal electoral reform event

A high turnout at an event is often directly related to how people were invited. Some people you hope will attend may have a scheduling conflict—but overall participation rates usually increase with a good invitation process. In addition to a welcoming, inclusive invitation process, providing sufficient advance notice will increase the likelihood that more participants can join in your event.

Note: if people cannot attend due to scheduling, you may want to tell them about other ways they can participate in the national dialogue on Canadian federal electoral reform.
