The Libdemo Movement is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of progressivism and liberal democracy in Canada, particularly among youth and young adults — the 18-to-34 demographic, often referred to as the Millennial generation.
Libdemo was founded in the spring of 2013 by a group of Montrealers interested in federal politics, but discouraged by the phenomenon of “vote-splitting” between the opposition parties, as well as the low levels of voter participation and civic engagement among youth. Industry Canada granted Libdemo incorporation as a not-for-profit organization in August 2013. The average age of our founding Board of Directors is 26 years old.
Our first project is to advocate for the Liberal Party, the New Democratic Party, and the Green Party to commit to open and accountable inter-party cooperation after the next election, which would lead to progressive unification later on.
The launch of the Libdemo Movement was supported by a modest loan from one of our volunteers who strongly supports progressive unification and civic engagement among youth. Our funding comes from donations by individuals and organizations.
