The Ontario Association of Former Parliamentarians (OAFP) is a non-profit volunteer organization created to serve former Members of the Ontario Legislative Assembly.
Established by an act of the legislature in 2000, the objectives of the association are:
- to put the knowledge and experience of its members at the service of parliamentary democracy in Ontario and elsewhere
- to serve the public interest by providing non-partisan support for the parliamentary system of government in Ontario
- to foster a spirit of community among former parliamentarians
- to foster good relations between members of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Ontario and former parliamentarians
- to protect and promote the interests of former parliamentarians
The association publishes a quarterly newsletter, The InFormer.
It is developing a variety of educational tools to assist in advancing awareness of the parliamentary form of government. It also acts as a central clearing house for former members seeking information from various departments of the Legislative Assembly.
The association has formed a relationship with similar groups of former parliamentarians in Quebec and Manitoba and, ultimately, is working towards the development of a global association of former members of state or provincial governments.
The current board of directors includes:
|Chair||Rev. Derwyn Shea|
