Leaders’ Debates Commission

The Leaders’ Debates Commission aims to make the debates a more predictable, reliable, and stable element of federal election campaigns.

Debates for the next federal general election

The Leaders’ Debates Commission will be working over the next weeks and months to fulfill our mandate: to organize leaders’ debates for the next federal general election.

We have been mandated to set participation criteria for the debates that we are organizing. We are consulting now, and we want your opinion. Learn more on our participation criteria page and provide input to us by email to before March 12, 2021.

We have also issued a Request for Proposal for a Debates Producer.
