The Foundation for the Study of Processes of Government in Canada is a registered non-profit organization founded in 1975.
- To engage young Canadians about the role and function of the three levels of democratic government in Canada
- To promote Canadian citizenship
The programs of the Foundation have also served to foster leadership skills in young Canadians. Participants in these programs have had the opportunity to learn about government, democracy and citizenship, to meet various actors in the Canadian public sphere, and to connect with other young people whose interests are similar to their own. Citizenship. Democracy. Governance. These concepts are integral to the functioning of our country, but what do they really mean? What do they mean for youth?
Since 1975, the Foundation for the Study of Processes of Government in Canada has sought to demystify the political process, and to ensure that student voices are heard. Through the Forum for Young Canadians, its flagship program, the Foundation provides young people 15 to 19 years of age direct access to the history, procedures, and energy of Parliament Hill. It also creates a collaborative community of engaged young leaders. This is an opportunity for students to network, develop their skills in a second language and apply the skills they learn to impactful community action. Many of today’s political leaders made their debut in Forum.
You, your child, or your student can be a part of a new generation of national leaders.
