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.
CIVIX is conducting Student Vote parallel elections for elementary and secondary schools during the Ontario municipal and school board elections and British Columbia local government elections this fall. Students will learn about the electoral process, engage in the campaign and cast ballots on official local candidates.
