The Alliance of the North (French: Alliance du Nord) is a Canadian social conservative and right-wing populist political party, originating from the province of Quebec. In the 2015 federal election, the party nominated its leader François Bélanger in Lévis—Lotbinière. Bélanger did not win a seat.

Ideology

On its website, the party created a list of six priorities, developed in September 2013, which form the foundation of its ideology. Among the priorities include reducing the size of the federal government, reducing the number of immigrants accepted into Canada to 150,000 per year, promoting a right to bear arms, and launching a federal investigation into "criminal bankers".[2]
