Writing a letter is a good way to present your views to politicians. 

CONTENT OF YOUR LETTER
  • Who is affected by pay inequity? If you are personally affected, say so. Explain how other individuals you have spoken with feel the same way too. If it does not personally affect you, you can still express your concern for the people who are experiencing this problem.
  • Explain your main arguments by having a paragraph for each main idea.
  • Ask your MLA or MP what their views are regarding the legislation of pay equity in public and private sectors.
  • Let the politician know that you are confident your concerns will be given serious consideration and ask for reply as soon as possible.

OUR TIPS

  • Be direct and explain your position clearly at the beginning of your letter.
  • Try to make this person your ally and not your enemy.
  • Use a polite and courteous style.
  • State your concerns in a clear, precise and firm manner.
 
HOW TO ADDRESS YOUR LETTER
 
The proper way to address Cabinet Ministers and Members of the Legislative Assembly is as follows:
  • “The Honourable (their full name)”, in the case of Ministers, and
  • “Mr./Ms. (their family name)”, in the case of MLAs.
