DemocracyXChange is the annual summit for Canada’s emerging democracy sector to connect, learn and share.

Globally, the indicators are clear. We are in the midst of a democratic recession that may seem endless. But as we enter another federal election year, the opportunity to see this moment as ours to shape with a gathering focused on strengthening democracy and ground-up community change has never been more pressing. In an age of polarization, it’s more important than ever to connect across borders, political orientations, values and points of view.

From neighbourhood changemakers to thought leaders and national campaigners, DemocracyXChange is a meeting place for practitioners demonstrating the power of explicit engagement, technology and new ways of organizing to make change happen.

This event is hosted by the Open Democracy Project & Ryerson Leadership Lab.
