If we want young Canadians to grow up into active citizens, then shouldn’t we give them a way to practice first? That’s what Student Vote is all about. Student Vote provides teachers and their students with all the resources they need to structure their own campaigns during the election period. To support this effort ETFO produced the curriculum document You Choose.
