Your letter must clearly ask or demand a specific action: e.g., a new policy or policy change, funding for a specific program or <
project, etc. This should go in the opening paragraph. <
Provide (only) enough background research and reasoning to legitimize your ask/demand. Provide at least two credible <
sources to substantiate your claims. You should try to cite at least one academic paper, but if nothing has been published <
recently on your topic, then both your sources might come from recent journalistic accounts and/or reports by civil society <
organizations. These sources can be referenced using APA-style or Chicago Style (footnotes) and a “References” section at <
the end of the letter following your signature. But the source should still be introduced in the body of the text (“A recent <
report by….”, “Researchers at the University of ….” “…as reported recently in The Globe and Mail). Provide a URL for on-line <
sources.
