Student Vote is the flagship program of CIVIX.

The Student Vote results are shared with the public and with the media for broadcast or publication. CIVIX delivered its largest project to date during the 2015 federal election with approximately half of all Canadian schools registering to participate. In total, 922,000 students cast a ballot from 6,662 schools across Canada, representing all 338 electoral districts.

Canada 150

This year, Canada Day marks a significant milestone as it has been 150 years since Confederation when Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick came together to form the Dominion of Canada. Through the British North America Act of 1867, each of these former British colonies united as one independent nation.

Today is National Aboriginal Day!

June 21st, 2017 by CIVIX

The CIVIX team wants to recognize and celebrate the outstanding contributions of First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples who have inhabited Turtle Island, North America, for millennia to our country on this National Aboriginal Day.

Our national office is located on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, and most recently, the territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work in the community, on the territory that is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island. 

The National Aboriginal Day was announced in 1996 by then Governor General of Canada, Roméo LeBlanc. This celebration takes place every year on June 21st, and the date was chosen because of the summer solstice. The summer solstice has great spiritual and cultural importance to many Indigenous peoples, who celebrate their heritage on this date. The Trudeau government has promised to rename this celebration to National Indigenous Day, to ensure consistency with international terminology. Special events across Canada are organized this year to commemorate this special day as well as Canada 150.

There are positive and joyful things to celebrate on National Aboriginal Day. Earlier this month, thirty Indigenous leaders and non-Indigenous allies were honoured at Rideau Hall and appointed to the Order of Canada for their outstanding contribution to Indigenous peoples in Canada. There is also a growing revitalization of many Indigenous languages and traditional practices throughout the country, led by Indigenous youth, elders and leaders who contribute to the vibrancy of Indigenous cultures.

It is also a day to acknowledge the harm caused to Indigenous peoples over the years by the Residential School system and other colonial policies, and the long-lasting impacts on communities and individuals across Canada. A Truth and Reconciliation Commission was put in place a few years ago to investigate into the mistreatment of Indigenous children and offer solutions to the intergenerational trauma caused by this system. Recently, the government of Canada has launched a National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls to document, listen to testimonies, and offer solutions to the thousands of deaths and disappearances of Indigenous women.

Many resources are available to explore these issues and the significance of National Aboriginal Day:

Rep Day is a civic education initiative that connects students at the elementary and secondary levels with their local MP for a dialogue on government, the electoral process and issues that affect them. The program aims to help students develop a better understanding and sense of trust in the people and institutions within our democracy.

Between September 2016 and June 2017, 167 visits were organized with 94 MPs across all ten provinces and one territory. Together, participating MPs engaged with more than 8,000 students.

Since the conception of the Rep Day program in 2012, more than 500 visits have been coordinated across Canada, and more than half of all MPs have participated. In 2016 alone, 284 visits were coordinated in every province and territory and engaged more than 13,000 students.
