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.

 

The Student Budget Consultation provides youth with an opportunity to learn about the government’s revenues and expenditures, discuss important political issues and suggested policies, and offer their insights on the priorities of the upcoming federal budget. Educators can register now.

CIVIX organized a Student Vote parallel election for elementary, intermediate and high schools throughout the country coinciding with the 2019 federal election. In total, 1.2 million Student Vote Canada 2019 ballots were cast from more than 8,000 Canadian schools, representing all 338 ridings.
