Elections Nova Scotia celebrates Democracy Week


September 14, 2018


Elections Nova Scotia is participating in Canada’s Democracy Week September 15-21, 2018.


We’ll be offering tips on getting on the voters list, on finding educational and in-depth electoral information, and will share information about democratic initiatives at Elections Nova Scotia, and other electoral jurisdictions across Canada. Watch for highlights on Twitter @electionsns, on Facebook www.facebook.com/electionsnovascotia and the electionsnovascotia.ca website.


Canada’s Democracy Week is organized by Elections Canada, a non-partisan agency created by Parliament that aims to raise awareness of democracy and the importance of voting, particularly among youth. It builds on the United Nations’ International Day of Democracy on September 15 and extends the celebration with a week of activities to highlight Canada's democratic traditions and achievements.
