The Canada Weighted Vote Electoral Method

Welcome to the website for the Canada Weighted Vote Electoral Method (CWV), a new way to ensure proportional representation (PR) in a parliament or other legislative body.

CWV addresses the inequalities of Canada's 'winner-take-all' voting system, in which only the candidate who receives the most votes in each district becomes a member of parliament (MP), and in which all votes cast for losing candidates are discarded and receive no representation in parliament. 

PR voting systems currently in use around the world have elements that many Canadian voters dislike, including larger voting districts with multiple politicians, too many Members of parliament appointed by party leaders and not directly accountable to voters, large increases in the number of members of the parliament or legislature, and/or too many choices and complexities at the ballot box.

The Canada Weighted Vote system resolves all of these concerns. It's principal characteristic is that the traditional one-vote-per-MP in parliament is replaced by increasing the voting power of MPs of under-represented parties to reflect the overall popular vote that the party received in the most recent general election, modified by by-elections.

This website describes the CWV method in detail and includes a link to an interactive file (Excel) that can be downloaded, and which enables users to insert and see the instant results of any election scenario he/she desires.
