Upcoming Institutes on Parliamentary Democracy
The CIVIX team has had the opportunity to attend some fantastic professional development opportunities for educators. Educators can find Teachers Institutes on Parliamentary Democracy across the country, at both provincial legislatures and in Ottawa. While the schedules of these Institutes vary, educators get to experience what makes our democracy work firsthand by seeing the inner workings of parliament.

Coordinated by the Library of Parliament.
