The next BC NDP convention — the first in-person since the pandemic — will be held in Victoria at the Victoria Conference Centre over three days in mid-November: Friday November 17 through Sunday November 19, 2023.
The promotional theme is “building a better future together”. The BC NDP resolutions for 2023 are now closed.
National convention Oct 13-15:
AS BC’s 37th Premier, Eby will be a keynote speaker at the national NDP convention in Hamilton Ontario this coming weekend, October 13 to 15. His address is about the work the BC NDP Government has done to address the issues people are facing daily.
Also addressing the national NDP convention this weekend will be long-time USA Democrat and NDP fan Bernie Sanders in a pre-recorded video (apparently his message will be to warn party faithful about what he says are massive attacks on the foundations of democracy and rule of law around the world), as well as Toronto Mayor Olivia Chow, Hamilton Mayor Andrea Horwath, Ontario NDP Leader Marit Stiles, and Bea Bruske, president of the Canadian Labour Congress.
