Samara Democracy Reports

Since 2011, Samara has undertaken research into the state of our political process, which we're presenting in a series of reports. These Samara Democracy Reports are designed to increase Canadians’ understanding of politics, investigate commonly held assumptions, provoke questions and elevate the discussion on the health of Canadian political and democratic participation in Canada.

The latest report "By Invitation Only: Canadians' Perceptions of Political Parties" is available to read here.

Our research has culminated in "Samara's Democracy 360", a tool to help illuminate how politics works, specifically focusing on the relationship between citizens and the political process.

Samara's work is made possible by our generous funders
