Our leadership contest is now open (again)!
Anyone who supports the core values of the BC Green Party can vote as a party member or as a registered supporter.
A lot has changed since we first launched our leadership contest in January. From the COVID-19 pandemic, to the spotlight on police brutality and systemic racism, society has been exposed for failing entire groups of people.
We are ready for a leader with a vision to overhaul our broken social, environmental and economic realities.
BC Greens are excited to host a leadership contest based on the principles of participatory democracy and social justice. The contest application rules were designed with a focus on equity, diversity and inclusivity. Any member who meets the eligibility requirements may apply to become a candidate. We welcome applications from individuals that represent BC’s diverse communities.
