First Vote 2018
In May of 2018, First Vote ran its first First Vote Conference.
This pilot project sought to empower a select group of grade 12 students in the Niagara Region to pledge their First Vote for the 2018 provincial elections.
Students learned about Canadian politics, how government works, and engaged in a Q&A debate period with their MPP candidates; who sat on the edge of their seats. We’re proud to say this was successful, and we were asked to organize First Vote 2019 in preparation for the federal elections.
