Stronger Democracy

Only democracy has the potential to deliver fair, efficient, and universal solutions to Canada’s—and the world’s—greatest problems. But democracy needs bold, diverse leadership and engagement from Canadians to succeed.

What would it take to spark a fundamental shift in how Canadians engage with their democracy? Why is it important to promote and value democracy? How do we create and foster opportunities for those who are driving change in this space to learn, develop and flourish?

CKX and Samara Canada are exploring these questions together as we seek to better understand how we can support emerging leaders who are building a strong, responsive and inclusive democracy in Canada.

Why are we coming together to do this?

As a cause-driven and issue-agnostic social change platform, CKX has always worked with others to advance our pursuit of social change. This collaboration with Samara Canada is an opportunity to work with Canada’s most trusted, non-partisan champion of democracy and civic engagement to do just that.

While much of social change work is action-oriented and results-driven, our collaboration asserts the value of creating and holding space for reflection, deep learning and knowledge exchange to inform that change and those who are driving it.


What Does this collaboration entail?

We're working on projects that will help us get a better sense of how we can provide emerging leaders in democracy with more opportunities to develop, learn and flourish.

We're bringing emerging leaders together to celebrate their contributions and learn from each other, exploring our relationship to democracy through art, and capturing stories of impact and lessons learned from practitioners in the field.
