About US

As our online information environment has become increasingly polluted with false and misleading information, it has become challenging to distinguish reliable information from what is untrue, biased, or agenda-driven. When there is so much information out there, and so much of it is low quality, it can be overwhelming.


CIVIX digital information literacy initiative aims to support teachers in empowering students with the knowledge and skills required to locate the information they can trust. So students may make informed choices in the best interests of themselves and their communities.


Our vision is a world where students view themselves as citizens, care about what is true or credible, routinely evaluate sources and claims, and know where to look for reliable information.


CIVIX is a national registered charity dedicated to building the skills and habits of active and informed citizenship among young Canadians. CIVIX provides experiential learning opportunities to help young Canadians practice their rights and responsibilities as citizens and connect with their democratic institutions. Student Vote, the flagship program of CIVIX, is a parallel election for students under the voting age, which coincides with official elections. In the 2019 federal election, 1.2 million students cast ballots from over 8,000 schools.
