In 2016, the British Council in Canada and the United Nations Association in Canada launched the Active Citizens programme in communities across the country. The programme trained over 300 young leaders to use the Active Citizens framework to address the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in their communities. Workshops took place in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax. Each year, 15 selected individuals attended the Youth Innovation Summit on Parliament Hill.

We are looking forward to launching the 3rd year of Active Citizens: more information coming soon!
