During the last federal election, the CAJ called for the Leaders’ Debates Commission to be more transparent in its accreditation process. This year, the Commission has released accreditation instructions which include three application options. Members of professional media associations, including the CAJ, are among those eligible to go through the accreditation process.
If you are applying for press accreditation for the federal leaders debate, you may be asked to prove that you are a Class A CAJ member. To do so, you may provide your CAJ membership card to the commission or send us a note to request a proof-of membership letter.
If you require a letter, please request one in advance of the accreditation application deadline on August 25.
