Civic Literacy Project

The Toronto Civic Literacy Collaborative will mobilize an extensive network of over 200 community-based agencies in Toronto, and their existing relationships with hundreds of thousand of Toronto’s aboriginal community members, racialized community members, immigrant community members, youth who are first-time voters and people living with low-incomes, to deliver community-tailored civic literacy training and educational materials designed to increase levels of civic engagement, knowledge of government roles, and voter participation rates among these target communities.

The collaboration between the 7  partners will begin May 1, 2014 and end April 30, 2016. The member groups of the Toronto Civic Literacy Project are:
