Liberty starts with YOU! Volunteer to help build a better BC!
A year ago, the BC Libertarian Party was a small organization with a few dozen members, and not much influence. Now we’ve grown to a couple hundred members, and ranked 4th among BC’s political parties in terms of number of candidates in the 2017 election. But we still have a ways to go to achieve major party status and the credibility and media attention that goes with it. Without that, our message of free markets, civil liberties, and limited government will continue to be drowned out by the “more-government-is-the-solutions-to-all-problems” message of the NDP, Greens, and Liberals.
This is where we need your help. With active and engaged volunteers, we can grow to better support our candidates, develop comprehensive policies on important issues, and spread our message far and wide.
The Coordinator positions below are key roles that will work directly with the Party leadership to develop and implement growth strategies in particular areas. If you are interested in any of them, we encourage you to view the positions available below to find out more and send us a message expressing your interest. If you’d like to volunteer in a general capacity or occasional basis or have a particular skill to offer (graphic design, photography, web design, etc.) please let us know. You can also reach us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
