Constituency Town Halls in Canada and the Role of the MP as Representative

Members of Parliament (MPs) hold multiple and varying responsibilities as representatives, legislators, and party members in Canada’s Westminster-based model of Parliament. As representatives, MPs use different methods to engage constituents and hear their views. This paper investigates the nature of citizen participation and representation in Canadian federal politics, specifically through constituency town halls organized by MPs and their staff. This work analyzes how constituency town halls contribute to the role of MPs as democratic representatives.
