About your Electoral District Association (EDA)

Kingston and the Islands Electoral District Association (EDA) is the official Conservative board of directors in the Kingston area that represents the Party on a local level.

On October 16th, 2003, the leaders of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada and the Canadian Reform Conservative Alliance announced an agreement-in-principle to unite under a new political banner.  In December 2003, the merger was overwhelmingly ratified by members of both parties and the Conservative Party of Canada was officially born. This unification of Canada’s conservative parties restored and rejuvenated the national political movement that has been building a stronger, safer, and better Canada for almost 150 years.

Today’s Conservative Party is a vibrant national organization with strong grassroots support from coast to coast to coast. The Party, its caucus, and its members upholding the proud Canadian Conservative tradition.

Over the years, conservatives in Canada have fought elections under many different party banners, but the core principles of the movement have not changed: Canadian conservatives stand for sovereignty and a strong national defence; open federalism and national unity; free enterprise and individual achievement; and the opportunity for all Canadians, regardless of background, to achieve their dreams in a safe, healthy, and prosperous country.
