What is the Create Your Canada Contest?
Create Your Canada is an opportunity for students in Matthew's riding to submit their ideas for a new federal law that would make Canada - or the world - a better place.
This is your chance to help guide Canada into the future you’d like to see.
By filling out the submission form, your idea will be entered in the contest.
We will select the best idea and draft it into an actual Private Member’s Bill (a real piece of federal legislation). More information on
Best of luck and thank you for doing your part to create a better Canada for everyone!
