The Democratic Engagement Exchange at Ryerson University drives democratic engagement by building partnerships with academic institutions, community organizations and government agencies to create tools, and champion policies and programs that promote a more inclusive democracy.
For the 2019 federal Canadian election, it released its Election Handbook to prepare citizens to be engaged and informed voters. The Election Handbook was designed as an accessible, friendly, and informational document.
