September 14-21 is Canada’s Democracy Week, and the theme is “Let’s Get Ready to Vote”.

Civic literacy is the knowledge and skills you need to participate in making change in your community. In Canada, this includes voting. The voting process can be complicated, especially for someone who is voting for the first time, and/or has difficulty with the printed word.

ABC Life Literacy Canada has partnered with Elections Canada to create
