Following up from our AGM last month, the Provincial Council invites you to join your fellow members at our Special Meeting of Members (SMM) on Tuesday, May 11th from 7pm to 9:30pm (and May 18th if needed). The object of this SMM is to complete the unfinished business of this past AGM: the amendments that were provided to all members on February 17th, 2021.
There is no fee to attend our Online AGM, but we invite you to contribute and renew your membership. (Membership fees are not tax deductible.)
Deadline for registration is May 10th at 5pm.
The SMM will be held online, with a phone in option, in order to comply with the restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Simultaneous French/English translation will be provided for the SMM.
*To be able to participate, you must have been a member for at least 14 days, i.e. since Tuesday, April 27th. You can sign up to be a member by following this link Become a member.
To register for the SMM, you must complete this Zoom registration form. You can also register by calling us at 506-447-8499 and leaving a message with your name and phone number. We will get back to you to complete your registration.
To ensure all interested members can participate efficiently in our meeting, a “practice” session will be offered 30 minutes prior to the meeting; simply login with the link you will receive from the registration process. This session will allow for everyone to test their computer or phone settings and provide guidance in using all of the Zoom software features.
The specific goal of the Special Meeting of Members (SMM) is to complete the unfinished business of this past AGM*. Therefore, the following bylaw and constitution recommendations from the Provincial Council will be presented for member approval at the SMM.
* Note that these are the same propositions that were submitted to you on February 17th, 2021 with the exception of those already discussed and adopted at the 2021 AGM. The up to date version of our bylaws is posted on our website at this address: https://www.greenpartynb.ca/constitution
See you at the SMM!
Let's build on the recent successes of our Green candidate for Moncton Centre.
On election night, Carole Chan was leading for 20 minutes, reaching more than 27% of the vote.
We need to continue the work now so that our candidate win the seat next time around.
As the current President of the NB Green Party Association for Moncton Centre, it is time to renew the Board of Directors.
Therefore, I invite you all to a virtual Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, November 25th to elect a new Board.
Here are the positions to be filled:
- Vice President
- Official Agent
In addition, we will form 4 ad-hoc committees:
- Communication and marketing team
- Research Team
- Community Engagement Team (students/seniors/alumni)
- Event Team
Come and join this next team!!
Please reply to [email protected] if you would like to apply for either the board or in a committee. An electronic vote will be held at our AGM to appoint the Board.
The link to attend the AGM along with its agenda will be shared soon.
I look forward to hearing from you,
President of the Green Party of NB Association for Moncton Centre
Dear Green Party of NB members of the Carleton 45 RDA and supporters:
This is a Notice of Carleton 45 Green Party Annual General Meeting. It will be held Saturday, Nov. 21st at St. Gertrude's Parish Hall, 117 Union Street, Woodstock at 3:00 pm.
COVID-19 protocols will be followed closely and everyone must wear their pandemic mask. I need to know who is planning to attend the AGM so please reply to confirm by Nov. 18 at [email protected]
Agenda items include: Reports; discussion and vote on a motion for the Green Party of NB to ban the use of #5 Polypropyline election signs that are not recyclable in New Brunswick and to seek an alternative that is recyclable; election of officers — we need a new President, Official Representative and Secretary.
We are proud to have had a stable, active RDA in Carleton for the past six years and we want to continue to strengthen our base to prepare for the next election. With the Higgs government holding only a two seat majority, it is possible that the next provincial election, or a by-election, may occur well before the 4-year election cycle expires.
These are some of the things that our RDA can do to prepare for the next provincial election:
• Develop and maintain an online information site where people can learn more about our RDA and the Green Party;
• Fundraising activities to support our RDA and prepare for the next election campaign;
• Make annual donations with tax-receipts — 80% going to our RDA and 20% going to the Green Party of NB;
• Participate in policy development;
• Work with members in other RDAs to build a stronger province-wide network sharing ideas, events, activities, etc.
Our party is only as strong as the RDAs! This is why we must remain active, optimistic and continue to be involved despite the pandemic and a less active political time. After all, the Green Party is the best party for the future of our children and their children by far!
Looking forward to your participation,
Retiring President Carleton 45 RDA

This year the AGM will be organized in a special way to adhere to our by-laws and the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The meeting will be held online (with a phone in option) to avoid risks of infection. As this is our first attempt at holding an AGM online we also plan to reduce the agenda to a minimum. That means we will be limited to reports from party officers and the running of Provincial Council elections. Member motions and policy amendments will be deferred to a later date.
To hold the AGM prior to the summer we are also calling a Special Meeting of Members to ask members to waive the 90 days’ notice requirement for an AGM (By-law 4.1.3).
Here is the proposed schedule for Sunday June 7:
- Call to order Special Meeting of Members (online)
- Ask members to approve the motion that: "By-law 4.1.3 be set aside for the year 2020".
- Ask members to call for the 2020 AGM to start immediately following the meeting.
- Call to order AGM (online)
- Agenda will be sent upon your registration
Simultaneous French/English translation will be provided for the AGM and the SMM. Provincial Council elections will also take place online as part of our AGM using an online voting software.

The immense challenges of COVID-19 also come with unique opportunities for change.
Many long-standing Green ideas and policy proposals have come into the spotlight during the COVID-19 crisis.
We are seeing real discussions about the need for a Guaranteed Liveable Income as program after program is being rolled out to support Canadians, and still many are finding themselves without enough to live.
We are seeing traction within government on the food security issue like never before.
We are having important discussions about the role of essential workers and the need for fair pay.
This is our time to see significant policy change. We must act now, providing real solutions to real problems.
Join Green MLAs David Coon, Megan Mitton and Kevin Arseneau for a panel discussion and Q&A to discuss these important issues and propose solutions.
