Youth in Canada are disengaged from politics and the numbers from the last federal elections show it. In order to facilitate the debate, we use the Facts section of the website to provide Canadian youth with a valuable source of information about Canadian politics and the vocabulary that goes along with it. This section includes a partial glossary, brief histories and contemporary understanding of various segments of leadership, NGOs (non-governmental organizations) and pertinent articles.
