CIVIX is a non-partisan, national registered charity dedicated to building the skills and habits of active and engaged citizenship among young Canadians. Our vision is a strong and inclusive democracy where all young people are ready, willing and able to participate.

 

CIVIX provides experiential learning opportunities to help young Canadians practice their rights and responsibilities as citizens. Instead of studying about democracy, they experience it first-hand with real issues in real-time.

 

CIVIX is organizing a Student Vote parallel elections for elementary and high schools coinciding with the New Brunswick provincial election, as well as the British Columbia local and school trustee elections, the Ontario municipal and school board elections and the Manitoba municipal and school board elections. Educators can register now.

NewsWise is a news literacy program designed to provide school-aged Canadians with an understanding of the role of journalism in a healthy democracy, and the tools to find and filter information online.
