On Thursday, October 15, clients at the Association for New Canadians’ ESL Training Centre took part in the CIVIX Student Vote. This event is a mock vote coinciding with the Canadian federal election to be held on October 19. Participants held a “rally” in the ESL Training Centre Cafeteria, during which they were provided with an overview of the five candidates in their riding as well as highlights from the platforms of each party. After the rally, clients from LINC Level 5 acted as volunteer polling station attendants and assisted everyone as they made their vote.
The event was a great way for clients of the Association to learn about the democratic process and the various political parties operating in Canada. Please visit our “Gallery” to view photos from the day.
