Welcome to Inspire Democracy, a place where organizations and citizens like you can find research and share information on how to encourage youth civic engagement in Canada. Inspire Democracy is an Elections Canada initiative.
On this website you can explore the latest research on youth engagement – everything from voter turnout and voter registration data to studies on civic participation, facts on Millennials and on how political parties engage with youth, the impact of civic education and mobilization techniques. You will also find links to others in the engagement community and tools for getting young people involved in democratic life.
In our Events section, you can browse through a listing of upcoming activities, including Elections Canada's Inspire Democracy workshops beginning in April 2014.
Stay in the know by checking out our quarterly newsletter.
And don't forget to tell us what you and your organization are working on, so that we can include your research, events or civic education tools here, too.
Happy reading. We hope you get inspired to take action in your community!
