September 15th marks the International Day of Democracy, a day first commemorated by the United Nations in 2007.
from Elections Ontario:
We encourage ongoing democratic engagement for electors and future voters across the province. Today, we’re celebrating democracy with the launch of our updated civics curriculum, available now on our website.
The curriculum is equipped with lessons on:
- The principles of democracy
- What makes a strong democracy
- Civic engagement
- Canada’s and Ontario’s political processes and elections
While the curriculum is designed for educators of students in Grades 5 and 10, anyone can use them.
