Volunteer with the Political Action Network

To become a part of the Political Action Network (PAN), an individual must meet the following criteria:
  • The volunteer must be an OSPE member in good standing
  • To avoid any confusion, PAN volunteers cannot be members of PEO's Government Liaison Program
  • Must live in a riding requiring PAN representation
  • Finally, we ask for an enthusiastic desire to be a strong voice for the engineering profession 

Step 1: Recruitment

Interested volunteers should contact our advocacy team at ambassador@ospe.on.ca

Step 2: Training

Attend a PAN training session to learn  about government relations and OSPE's policy issues

Step 3: Meeting the MPP

OSPE will schedule a 30-minute meeting with you and your MPP (usually twice a year) and provide briefing materials. Briefing calls with OSPE's Policy and Government Relations staff can be arranged prior to the MPP meeting.

Step 4: Preparing for a Constituency Meeting

OSPE has developed this comprehensive guide to help PAN reps understand how the process unfolds, how to prepare for a constituency meeting, and how to effectively communicate key messages to their MPP on behalf of the Society.

Step 5: Ongoing Community Presence

OSPE staff keep PAN volunteers up-to-date on events in their particular ridings, to which they are encouraged to attend
