The Cowichan-Malahat-Langford (CML) EDA was created in February 2014 after the last federal electoral district redistribution in 2013. Prior to that time, the south end of our district was a part of Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca, while the portion north of the Malahat was in the Nanaimo-Cowichan riding.
The EDA is comprised of members of the federal wing of the New Democratic Party of Canada. It is governed, under the Constitution and By-Laws of the federal Party and, on a day to day basis, is run by an Executive made up of volunteers currently numbering 16. These volunteers stand for election annually at the EDA’s Annual General Meeting.
