How to go Doorknocking

How to go Doorknocking


Help us get Stefanie Hardman elected to Victoria City Council!
Doorknocking (also called canvassing) is the best way to spread the word about Stefanie and her vision of a more affordable, inclusive, and thriving Victoria!
 
Join us for a training session on how to knock on doors/canvass for the campaign. We will go over what canvassing is, how to canvass, and talk about all the best tips and tricks for connecting with people at the door. Then head out to the doorsteps for some practice! This will be followed by a short debrief session where we will discuss our experiences – what worked and what didn’t.
This is the perfect training opportunity for anyone who wants to volunteer on the Together Victoria campaign! Whether you are a seasoned canvasser or brand new, this training session is a great opportunity to polish up those skills and get us excited for the campaign ahead. We would love to see you out there supporting Stefanie's vision and spreading the word!
 
We acknowledge with the utmost respect that this event is happening on the homelands of the Lekwungen people, now known as the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations.
