Write Authorities about Concerns You Have Today!

Be the Change You Want to See!

Write Your Local Authorities! 

Write your national and provincial leaders hand written, as well as email letters, one letter a month. Research shows written letters are powerful. You don't have to say a lot, just say what you mean ... and be encouraging, too, they have a tough job, so thank them for what they are doing, tell them you are praying for them ... but be bold and call for action now!

Write them about current issues like the ones listed in the EFC website, evangelicalfellowship.ca.

Writing to Government Officials (from Peacemakers Trust)

  • Write short letters: Try to keep your letter to one page. The shorter the better.

  • Be courteous: Be careful to write as though the recipient would be concerned and wish to help. Use the proper form of address and salutation for the official you are writing to.

  • Be accurate: Provide information that can be verified about facts and laws. Make sure your information is up to date.

  • Remain non-partisan: Avoid making partisan political or religious comments. Instead, appeal to domestic constitutions or domestic laws, and principles of international law, and international human rights, emphasizing conventions and treaties signed by the country in question. See Canada's laws and the international treaties it has signed.

  • Be credible: Use formal grammar and punctuation. Type your letter if possible, using the appropriate format for a formal letter.

  • Request a response: Courteously ask for a response to your letter.

  • Sign and date your letter: Date your letter and put your name and address on both the letter and the envelope. Write legibly. Don't send anonymous letters.

  • Send a hard copy: If you send an e-mail, also take the time to send a hard copy by fax and by mail. Use sufficient airmail postage and airmail stickers.

  • Keep a copy: Keep a copy of your letter and any replies you receive.
