On June 15th, delegates and party members of the Ontario NDP passed a resolution to lower the voting age to 14.

“Resolution 5-5: Youth Political Engagement” also tackled the engagement of young voters and the need to improve civics education in the province.

“BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the ONDP will, upon forming government, lower the voting age to 14,” read the resolution.
