About Future Majority

Future Majority is a national nonpartisan non-profit, founded in October 2018. We embolden the collective voice of young Canadians to shape the nation’s policy agenda for a more economically equitable and environmentally livable future.

Future Majority’s 2019 focus is mobilizing young Canadians to vote in the Federal Election through grassroots organizing. Specifically, we are prioritizing campuses in what are likely to be the most hotly contested ridings, as all of the parties are more likely to pay attention to the issues young voters care about there.

Future Majority inaugural election organizing fellowship

Future Majority is launching a highly competitive paid election organizing fellowship. The fellowship runs from August 2019 through mid-October 2019, where you’ll receive intensive classroom training, and lead your own large-scale, volunteer-driven voter education drive and turnout programs targeting young voters at a campus in one of the most hotly contested swing ridings in the country. You’ll get to make sure that young Canadians have a voice in this election and that all the major political parties know that if they want to win, they’ll need to prioritize issues that young Canadians care about most.

Future Majority fellows go where the fight is and wherever they can make the biggest impact. You could work in Prince George, British Columbia or St. John’s, Newfoundland and anywhere in between. We will definitely take your location preferences into account, but we require all fellows to be geographically flexible.
