The website offers many other resources, including information on where and how to vote, as well as ways to vote depending on your personal situation (i.e. for students, Canadians abroad and more).

If you’re not sure how you lean politically, you can use a Vote Compass. Political Scientists developed this tool with Vox Pop Labs and CBC. They designed it to help you explore how your views align with the different parties in Canada.
