Green Party
- There are two Internet pages for the Green Party.  One is still campaigning for the Federal election.  The other looks for local helpers and donations but references an Ottawa address.  I'd guess they will be more active closer to the election.

New Democratic Party - No Candidate has been named but there is plenty of time.  The best source of info is the local NDP Facebook page here.

Other Parties

It's not known if any other Party or their Candidates will be running in the next election - here's a list of potentials:
