September 01, 2017

Revitalizing our Democracy is a pan-Canadian, multi-sector collaboration of individuals and organizations including leading scholars, engagement practitioners, diversity advocates, foundations, and Indigenous, government, private sector and civil society leaders concerned with the health and vitality of Canada’s democracy. The aim of Revitalizing our Democracy is to create a five-year focused collaborative program designed to strengthen the pillars of Canada’s democratic ecosystem by addressing the underlying symptoms that have made our democracy vulnerable. The overarching vision of the initiative is to spur innovation in the creation, development, and implementation of citizen participation and engagement methods that work to recognize and reinforce Canada’s democratic assets.
