2020- 2022 Policy Process | Green Party of Canada
Where GPC membership collaborates to develop our policies
G21-B011 Regional Associations of EDAs
Amend Bylaw 8.3 from “Provincial Divisions remaining be disbanded” to read:
“Provincial Divisions remaining will be replaced by associations corresponding to the regions outlined in Bylaw 3.”
These associations will be based on the AQPVC model and will include a board of directors as well as regional spokespersons that bring together adjacent EDAs. Please see
Put in place regional groups or associations of EDAs or candidates, similar to the one that exists in Quebec (AQPVC - Quebec wing), based on the division of Canada into 6 regions, i.e. one association per region.
Enables different provincial ridings to come together and support each other, in order to have a greater impact on provincial and local issues. Increased sense of belonging in the party by allowing for access to decentralized resources.
Supporting Comments from Submitter
Working closely on a project with people who think differently allows us to explore all possibilities, and to ensure a complete understanding of the project.
In addition to advancing the project through the experiences of each person, teamwork is ideal for the development of the skills of less experienced collaborators.
Finally, because decisions are made in accordance with the different points of view brought to the table, they tend to be more thorough and thoughtful than when the decision-making process is the responsibility of only one person.
Team projects encourage employees to feel proud of their contributions. Tackling obstacles and creating notable work together makes team members feel fulfilled. Working toward achieving company goals allows employees to feel connected to the company. This builds loyalty, leading to a higher level of job satisfaction among employees.
A group can sometimes deal with complicated, difficult, deep, and involved problems more effectively than individuals can. That's because the wider, more diverse range of skill sets and experience can tackle larger and more difficult problems.
