Join Ottawa's "Citizens Academy" for their launch on November 8th

One of Samara's community partners on Democracy Talks is a nascent civic engagement program in Ottawa called the Citizens Academy. The Academy's purpose is to help representative groups of citizens come together to learn how the city works and to develop the confidence and skills they need to be effective as volunteers, voters, and advocates.  The Academy will be an annual learning program with eight evening sessions when it launches in 2013.

We're looking forward to seeing the Citizens Academy grow and succeed, and we'd encourage those of you in the Ottawa region attend their launch event on November 8th, the details for which they've provided here:

The Citizens Academy ( still has some openings for their launch on November 8th on learning and engaging with the municipality and citizens across the city. If you are interested, please register here: before October 26th.  And if you are not available, please share this email throughout your networks.
