Provincial Executive Elections

Every year the party holds internal elections for our governing Provincial Executive (PE). The PE is responsible for the Green Party of Ontario's governance, similar to a board of directors, and sets the strategic goals, annual plan and budget for the party.

The following positions are up for election at the 2021 convention:

  • President
  • CFO
  • Eastern
  • Toronto
  • Southwestern
  • Young Greens
  • Central (one non-female vacancy)
