Community organizers will find a long list of helpful resources here, including links to many national and provincial organizations working to increase youth participation. The site also offers some original research and infographics that provide compelling data on the state of youth political involvement. Finally, Inspire Democracy collects some great tools from around the web, including best practice guides, news feeds for young people, classroom resources, and more.
The site is well organized, but as with any large resource, exploring all its content takes a little time and some navigation skills. The site is also one of the best sources for researchers and academics. Research resources include Elections Canada’s own data and reports on themes like “Civic Education” and “Milennials and their World.” It also gathers the latest findings from scholars and organizations from around the world, with reports covering everything from voter turnout and the impact of civic education to national and international databases on civic engagement - and that’s just scratching the surface.
