Some people are hesitant about joining a political party, because they believe that joining a political party means the party 'owns' them or their votes. But in reality, it's the other way around: you become an owner of the party!
As a member, you can vote to decide who Green-party candidates or the party's Provincial Council will be, you can approve grassroots policies and participate in caucuses, and get involved in shaping the future of the party, and thus the political future of PEI! We can provide you with support to develop a local Green association within your community, and you can even throw your hat in the ring to become a Green candidate yourself. Party membership allows you to participate in a rich layer of PEI's democracy.
Being a member is a totally private decision - the names of party members are never shared publicly - your employers, friends and family will only know if you decide to tell them, or if you take on a public role as a Green.
Who can join?
Any citizen or permanent resident of Prince Edward Island, who is at least fourteen years old or older, is eligible for membership in the Party, with full voting rights, provided the person is not a member of any other provincial political party. By becoming a member, you are also agreeing to uphold the Constitution & Bylaws and to respect the Code of Conduct & Ethics of the Green Party of Prince Edward Island.
Persons who are at least 12 but less than 14 years old may be designated a Youth Member, without full voting rights.
You can join using a credit card on this page by selecting one of the membership options at the top of this page, or download and fill out this form, then mail it in to us along with a cheque or money order for $10 or more.
Want to make an even bigger impact?
Please consider becoming a monthly donor to the Green Party of PEI. Monthly donations give us the financial stability we need for long term planning and investments, and after tax credits can cost as little as $2.92/month for a $10 monthly donation. You can set up a monthly donation from your credit card using our main Donate page, or click here for instructions on setting up a monthly donation by Pre-authorized Bank Debit.
Monthly contributions make you eligible for a self-renewing membership that you don't need to worry about renewing for as long as your monthly giving continues!
