In order to apply for registration of the Canadian People’s Party it’s first necessary to fulfil the following requirements listed below (please take a few moments to read them through). Foremost is the necessity of having a minimum of at least 250 registered members. Thus the need for official memberships.

The basic plan, in order to get the party rolling, is to charge $10.00 for a membership. This will entitle each member to a vote in whatever policies and decisions are made and also generate some start up funds that will be needed to complete all of the other requirements and get the party on the political map. Each member will also receive an official hard copy membership card via Canada Post.

Memberships can be purchased either through PayPal (please use the PayPal button on either of these two sites: HERE or HERE) or by sending $10.00 in cash, cheque or postal money order to the following address:

The Canadian People’s Party

4633 Barkerville Highway

Quesnel, B.C.

V2J 6T8

If you are using PayPal to obtain your membership please make a note of what the payment is for when you send it. An account will be opened at the local credit union under the party name and all monies, including donations, will be deposited into that account.

I will post information on the number of memberships as they arrive and also create an email list for members only which will be used to communicate any additional information that may not be posted on the website.

Donations are also welcome beyond the membership fee.


Thanks for your support and participation,

Arthur Topham

CPP Leader


Party name on the ballot
One of the traditional benefits of registered status for a political party is that the party’s name may appear on the ballot, together with the name of the party’s candidate in that electoral district. If a candidate is not endorsed by a registered party, the candidate can choose to have either the word “independent” or nothing at all under his or her name on the ballot.

Applying for registration
A political party that wishes to participate in a federal general election or by-election may apply to register with the Chief Electoral Officer of Canada. The application for registration must be signed by the party leader and must include:
•    the full name of the political party
•    either the party’s short-form name or the abbreviation of the party’s name, if any, which will appear on election documents such as the ballot
•    the party’s logo, if any
•    the name and address of the party’s leader, and a copy of the party’s resolution to appoint its leader that is certified by the leader and another officer of the party
•    the address of the party’s office where records are kept and to which communications may be addressed
•    the names and addresses of the party’s officers and their signed consent to act (minimum of three officers)
•    the name and address of the party’s auditor and the auditor’s signed consent to act as auditor
•    the name and address of the party’s chief agent and his or her signed consent to act as chief agent
•    the names, addresses and signatures of 250 electors and their declarations in the prescribed form that they are members of the party and support the party’s application for registration
•    the leader’s declaration in the prescribed form that having considered all the factors relevant to determining the party’s purposes, one of the party’s fundamental purposes is to participate in public affairs by endorsing one or more of its members as candidates and supporting their election.
The entire application, including the names of the members, is a public document. To confirm the accuracy of the leader’s declaration about the party’s fundamental purposes, the Chief Electoral Officer may ask the leader to provide further relevant information.

  1. Hi Arthur,
    I am very happy to see a new party in Canada. Being an immigrant from Germany in 1980 I always considered myself a true Canadian more than a German. When I immigrated to Canada I came because of the friendliness of the people and the freedom we could enjoy here in Canada without to many rules and red tape to open and operate an business. Unfortunately this all has changed over the past 40 years. I hope your party will be able to make a difference here in Canada and I would like to be a part of this. How can I help your party here in BC. I just sold my Winery shares last year to international investors and are well known in the community as a business man. Since I sold the winery I have a lot more time to do things for our country. Firstly I would like to join your party in the hopes that your party will make a difference here in Canada so we all can be proud Canadians again without our corrupt governments we presently have. I never have been a politician but always have been successful with every business I ever have been involved. I know a lot of the tourist business and the wine business if this may be any help (I owned a 5 star fishing lodge in NW-Ontario for 25 years and a high end Winery (Hainle Vineyards Estate Winery Ltd. and Deep Creek Wine Estate Ltd, in Peachland, BC). I am also have good relations with high end politicians in China. Presently I am a honourable Professor in Guangzhou helping to educate students in wine quality and winemaking. I can see myself assisting your government once elected in building great relations between China and Canada to increase Canadian trade in the wine industry between China and Canada. I’m well known in the Chinese community in Vancouver area including Richmond. Our private wine club includes the most influencing Chinese Business people from the BC area. Every political party in BC wants to get their vote, we have most of the Chinese-Canadian Leaders as members in our by invitation only Royal Wine club.
    Having said this I hope your party will be in BC soon so we can start building your membership and relations together.

    I am looking forward to help your party to create a small efficient government in which we can cut the red tape, get one Drivers license for all of Canada instead of every province, modify the health system, allow insurance companies to sell insurance in all provinces, take the government controlled companies and privities them if they are not profitable or competitive with private companies (BC Car insurance, etc) Make government employees accountable for their actions.

    Please send me a link to where I can sign up as a member. The website listed does not have a functional link at the moment.

    I am looking forward to hear from you in the near future.

    With kind regards
    Dr. Walter G. Huber
    CEO/Winemaker Hainle Vineyards Estate Winery Ltd.
