Government Contacts

The following is by no means an inexhaustible list but it is a start. Each category includes contact information for elected officials at each level of government. As time goes on and advocacy campaigns develop, we will be adding to this list ministry contacts, as well as, relevant senior government officials.

Please use these lists wisely.

Only contact those officials who have a direct influence on the issue at hand. Not only will this reduce the amount of time necessary on your part, but it will ensure you do not alienate potential allies.

Contrary to popular belief most people elected do care. Needless contact about things they cannot help you with is not wise. More importantly, refraining from mass emailing to any and all contacts shows you know your topic. In the long run that will build credibility. Don’t become spam.
