Citizenship Challenge Civics Education Guide

  • Citizenship
This education guide focuses on key topics in Canadian civics. The activities inform readers about how the Canadian governmental system works, and their rights and responsibilities as Canadian citizens. The guide is meant to give teachers and students the tools to engage with Canada’s democratic processes. Teachers can use the activities in this guide to prepare their students for the Citizenship Challenge, a mock citizenship quiz based on the test taken by newcomers on the path to citizenship. The Challenge tests students’ knowledge of Canada and challenges them to meet the standards expected of newcomers to the country.
