Civic Programs for Educators: Institutes on Parliamentary Democracy
This fall, members of the CIVIX team have had the opportunity to attend some fantastic professional development opportunities for educators. Across the country, at both provincial legislatures and in Ottawa, educators can find Teachers Institutes on Parliamentary Democracy. While the exact schedules of these Institutes vary, educators get to experience firsthand what makes our democracy work by meeting with and seeing the inner workings of parliament.
