During National Volunteer Week in Canada (April 21-27) we celebrated and recognized volunteers who continue to support our riding association’s goals.
As part of our recognition, Veronica Wynne was presented with the Ruth Franks Award of Volunteer Excellence for the most outstanding volunteer in our riding over the past year by PHP Riding President Karin McNair and Ruth Franks.

As part of our riding’s commitment to be more than a political organization, some of the local Young Liberals took part in a clean up at Malta Park on July 15. Organized by the Youth Committee, this event attracted youth and families in support of the beautification of the local park in the Junction.
Stay tuned for future activities from the energetic Youth Committee.
Thank you for visiting the official website of the Parkdale-High Park Federal Liberal Association, the hub of a diverse community of progressive and solutions-oriented individuals who continue to work to advance the policy ideas that matter the most for everyone.
Security for our seniors, the protection of our environment, the safety and security of our children’s future, and fairness for all Canadians — these Liberal values are Parkdale-High Park values. We need to work together to build a better type of political engagement.

The Parkdale-High Park Federal Liberal Association is one of the most active riding associations in the GTA. Our participation, and our financial support, is a reflection of our values as Liberals. The Conservatives and the NDP have some advantages in the category of fundraising, and our riding needs to lead the way in closing the gap. Sign up here to contribute a monthly donation to the party and your riding (as little as $10 a month!), half going to our association and half going to the national party. With tax credits, you get up to 75% of your donation back at tax time!
We need to be organized, effective, and funded, both in Ottawa and in Parkdale-High Park. With your help, we can better advance the ideals we share as Liberals.
