Canada's Democracy Week 2012

The Canadian Association of Former Parliamentarians (CAFP) is proud to partner with Elections Canada for Canada’s Democracy Week 2012. 

Democracy Week is a civic education initiative launched last year by Elections Canada to celebrate democracy and its positive impact on life in Canada.  It is built around the United Nations’ International Day of Democracy on September 15, and will run until September 22, 2012 this year. 

CAFP will be participating in four university events around the country.  The Hon. David Anderson is speaking at the University of Alberta’s Campus Saint-Jean on September 14, 2012; CAFP President Léo Duguay will be in a panel with Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand for University of Ottawa students on September 19, 2012; Ray Bonin is speaking at Laurentian University on September 20, 2012; and Maurice Harquail will be at UNB Fredericton on September 21, 2012. 

Have a look at other activities planned during Democracy Week.  Talk to young people in your community and help them discover our democracy.

To stay up to date on all Canada’s Democracy Week activities, you can follow them on Twitter @democracyCA, “Like” the Canada’s Democracy Week Facebook Page or check out some of last year’s activities on their YouTube Channel, where among others you will see last year’s presentation by CAFP President Léo Duguay.

We hope you will continue working with CAFP, as we promote democracy to young Canadian and work with young parliaments.
