Earlier this week, shortly after the launch of the 44th federal election, the Leaders’ Debates Commission released an open call to all news organizations inviting them to apply for accreditation to attend one (or both) of the two upcoming leadership debates that will take place as part of the campaign.
As part of the newly-released process, journalists from all NNC member publications will automatically be eligible for accreditation. The deadline for accreditation applications is Wednesday, August 25 at 23:59 EDT. The debates will take place on September 8 (French) and September 9 (English) at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Quebec.
