North Okanagan-Shuswap is a federal “Electoral District” or riding.
It encompasses the traditional unceded territories of the Syilx Okanagan people including the Splatsin tribe of the Secwepemc Nation, who have lived farmed, fished and made their home here for millenia.
Our association is an “Electoral District Association” or “EDA” for short.
Our purpose is to:
– Promote green values
– Foster awareness of the green party platform
– And prepare for all federal elections
We want to make the world a better place and we do that by working together, locally. So have a look around and if you like what you see, please join us.
