What shapes our democratic culture for better or worse?

We research the intersections of policy, procedures and citizens' experiences to identify how we can create a more resilient democratic culture across all communities in Canada.
Through collaborations with institutions, practitioners, and citizens we also design programs, conduct evaluations and explore options for legislative reform.

We identify what works, when, and how to improve democracy.

Effort is needed to improve our democratic culture by improving the peoples' experiences with our decision-making systems.
