The Issues

Middle-class families in Canada are working harder than ever, but falling further behind. It’s clear that Stephen Harper’s plan just isn't working.

Working Together for a Fair Society

The ORANGE Vision


The basic principles and fundamental goals of our party are what differentiates us  - we must never shy away from talking about them or stop striving to achieve them.

We believe in fighting — each and every day — for a more equal society. A much more equal society - economically and socially - that leaves no one behind.  

We believe in competing at the high end instead of the low end.

We believe in a strong and active role for government, because there are many things more important than making a buck in the market like:

  • Universal, publicly-owned and publicly-administered health care.
  • First-class, world-leading public education from pre-kindergarten to lifelong learning.
  • Clean drinking water, clean air, safe food, and safe streets.

We believe in addressing poverty, not just because doing so makes society better for everyone, but because we are our sisters’ keepers, and we do owe all of our fellow citizens our solidarity, our help, and our love.

We believe in respect for First Nations.

We believe that no matter what part of the world we or our ancestors come from, no matter our faith or lack thereof, our race, our ethnicity, our age, our abilities, our gender, our gender identity, our sexual orientation, our level or source of income: we are all equal.

We believe in the right to organize and to be represented by a union — without interference and without fear — so that people can be safe, respected, and well-paid at work.

We believe in a living minimum wage.

We believe in a strong public pension system.

We believe in the future of our rural and resource communities.

We believe in caring for our children and our seniors.

We believe in the right to decent housing.

We believe in investing in our cities, and in public transit.

We believe in protecting our environment.

We believe in an honest, open democracy that governs with integrity and respect.

And we believe these things are practical goals that can be achieved.

Love is better than anger, as a good friend of ours reminded us a few years ago. We are the party of hope. We are the party of optimism. We are the party that is about people coming together to make things better for all.
