Susan Kwong has been advancing citizen participation in Canada’s democracy for over 10 years. She organized for 8 years with Olivia Chow, former Toronto Councillor and MP, and actively serves on the Institute for Change Leaders Board as civic training facilitator.

Susan coordinates the work of Toronto’s CommitmentTOCommunity coalition, partnering with non-profits to provide civic training and supports that help hundreds of residents each year to effectively influence government through deputing at council, organizing civic campaigns, town halls and more.

Susan’s work has long been driven by a mission to help build a stronger democracy where all residents can influence government and contribute to building equitable communities.
Her collaborative organizing and civic work with marginalized communities empower residents from several equity seeking groups, to more effectively amplify their aspirations for a more equal city.

Through Susan’s work, service providers and neighbourhoods gained more everyday political citizens, thereby strengthening our democracy.
