Members of Parliament are democratically elected law makers who can advocate legislation promoting free movement and trade between Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. You can significantly help our campaign by contacting your local Member of Parliament today.
Step 1: Use the country directory below to locate your local MP and his/her contact details;
United Kingdom: http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps/
New Zealand: https://www.parliament.nz/en/mps-and-electorates/members-of-parliament
Step 2: Check their personal directory page to verify the spelling of their surname and note their correct mailing/email address;
Step 3: Address your letter/email to “Mr.” or “Ms.”, followed by the last name of the MP (for example: “Dear Mr. Jones,”). Treat the letter as you would any formal business letter. Exceptions apply to Ministers, Senators and Prime Ministers, who use the following salutations:
- For Ministers, the prefix “Minister” should be used instead, with no mention of the person’s first or last names (for example: “Dear Minister,”)
- For Senators, the prefix “Senator” should be used instead, with no mention of the person’s first or last names (for example: “Dear Senator,”)
- For Prime Ministers, the prefix “Prime Minister” should be used instead, with no mention of the person’s first or last names (for example: “Dear Prime Minister,”)

Please keep all letters/emails to your local Member of Parliament courteous and respectful. We are constantly working with Members of Parliament to advance our campaign, so please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com if you receive a supportive response from your local MP.
