CIVIX is a national, charitable organization and its mission is to grow young Canadians into engaged, committed and active citizens.
Through our programming we are building a healthy and robust democracy inspired by the full participation of our youngest members.
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 pertinent issues in real-time.
Young Canadians need and deserve a solid base of interest, knowledge and experience to inspire their citizenship. Without it they will continue to stay away from political participation, public policy and voting. With it, they will determine the future of Canadian democracy.
The Student Budget Consultation is a civic education and financial literacy program for high school students across Canada. It is a unique classroom program that will engage your students in a study of the federal budget and a consideration of national priorities before they offer their own opinions on the upcoming budget. The project runs from mid-November until the end of December. Educators can register now.
