Citizens Academy - Understand how Ottawa Operates

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Citizens Academy is an adult-learning program designed to promote civic literacy and understanding of how the City of Ottawa operates. 

The goal is to educate and empower citizens by giving them the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to actively participate in their community. The Academy focuses on bringing together groups, people and organizations from across all sectors in Ottawa. At the same time, we are promoting cross-sectoral discussion and networking between community groups, academics, businesses and City Hall. By bringing these groups into conversation with citizens, we can make Ottawa a better city.

The Academy will be running three pilot sessions in November, 2012 to prove the concept. The full program will be launched in the fall of 2013.
