About Us

The Toronto-Danforth NDP Riding Association represents both Ontario's New Democrats and Canada's NDP within the riding. We're a local, grassroots and volunteer-run organization that comes together as members to select our local NDP candidates, engage with community members about NDP policies and initiatives and build our skills and resources to successfully support our candidates in election campaigns.

We also have a key role in internal NDP processes, sending delegates to party conventions and advancing policy positions within the NDP. 

The executive of the riding association engages in a wide range of activities including fundraising, voter contact and outreach, candidate search, and election preparation. The executive generally meets monthly, and although non-members of the executive are unable to vote at meetings, any member of the NDP in Toronto-Danforth in good standing is welcome to attend and contribute to our discussions.

The executive is elected yearly at the Annual General Meeting and serves until the following Annual General Meeting. Our current executive for the 2023-2024 term was elected at our Annual General Meeting on April 24, 2023.

Federal Riding Association President: André Fast
Provincial Riding Association President: Holli-Lynne Elash
