Connecting local communities to the power of democracy.

Democracy is the foundation of a safe, prosperous and equitable society. It provides a platform for individuals and communities to be actively involved in decision-making and ensure their voices are heard.


About The Democracy Project

The Democracy Project is a Metroland-wide initiative. We’re dedicated to empowering local communities by providing them with the resources and tools they need to get involved in supporting and strengthening democracy. Our mission is to help individuals become more informed, engaged and active in the democratic process to make sure their voices are heard.

Metroland is a community news organization and publisher of six daily and more than 70 community newspapers in Southern Ontario. Metroland is a division of Torstar Corporation.
