The Toronto–Danforth NDP Riding Association is made up of the NDP members who live within the riding. Its purpose is to organize for electoral, political and educational purposes and to nominate candidates for electoral office. The riding association also recruits new members and carries out administrative work required by the party, Elections Ontario and Elections Canada.
Each year, at the riding association’s annual general meeting, members have an opportunity to review the previous year’s work, strategize for the year to follow, and run for executive positions. The riding association executive meets monthly throughout the year. All members in good standing are invited to executive meetings; contact us for the date and location of the next executive meeting.
The executive includes a number of elected positions:
- President, Federal and Provincial

Committees and Events
Members of the executive help coordinate the riding association’s outreach, youth, communications and policy committees. Through these committees, the riding association stays involved in the Toronto–Danforth community through a variety of events and activities.
For example, the outreach committee coordinates Cinema Politica Danforth, a free monthly film series featuring entertaining and politically engaging documentaries. These screenings are held various locations around the riding, and are always followed by a lively discussion with speakers familiar with the issue.
