Today marks the start of Canada’s Democracy Week hosted by Elections Canada (September 15 to September 21). Democracy Week aims to connect Canadians with activities that celebrate our democratic values and traditions in communities across the country.
Today was also the launch of the National Democracy Challenge and the theme for this year’s challenge is “Show us why Canada should vote!”. Young Canadians aged 14 to 17 are invited to answer the question through a video, an image or writing. The submission deadline is November 30, 2014 and contestants will win prizes for the best submissions in each category.
