Committees and Identity Caucuses

Identity Caucuses

The purpose of identity-based caucuses is to encourage full participation and promote the interests of diverse identity groups within the Party and to identify issues and recommend Green policies relevant to the groups that they represent.

Diversity Caucus

Purpose: The Diversity Caucus has been created to ensure that all GPPEI policies and activities provide a safe space for all communities. The Diversity Caucus will seek to support multicultural competency within the party at all levels of the party. As a Diversity Caucus, we will advocate ensuring equity, representation, diversity, and inclusion within the GPPEI for marginalized communities. To do this, the Diversity Caucus will guide and inform the members and leaders of the GPPEI on equity, inclusivity, and diversity issues and practices. The GPPEI recognizes that not all individuals identify as Canadian citizens or Islanders. As a Diversity Caucus, we wish to create authentic connections with all communities living on PEI. We want to create a safe environment where all individuals can seek representation within the party.



Membership and Volunteer Standing Committee

Purpose: Serving as the hub for volunteer and member activities, the Membership and Volunteer Committee supports membership growth by actively recruiting, retaining, and engaging members; building a volunteer pool comprising members and supporters, and promoting volunteer opportunities within the Green Party of PEI.


Finance Standing Committee

Purpose: The finance committee provides oversight of the financial aspects of the party, EDAs, and RAs. The finance committee collaborates with other committees to ensure everyone is working together on the finances of the Party. The finance committee provides budgeting and oversight for the finances of the election process for all 27 districts during election years.


Governance Standing Committee

Purpose: Governance refers to the structures and processes that establish an organization that makes which decisions, how they are made, who has a say, and who is accountable. The purpose of this committee is to oversee the Green Party of PEI governance documents, policies, and procedures and identify any issues, inconsistencies, or gaps that may be addressed. The goal is to ensure that all the party units have clear responsibilities and accountabilities and have the tools to work synergistically to advance the party's goals.


Elections Readiness Committee

Purpose: Serving as the primary planning, coordinating, and, in certain cases, decision-making body concerning ensuring the readiness of the Party for the next General Election, including contingencies for unexpectedly early election calls.


The party has several ad-hoc committees that are formed as need when needed
