The people shaping Toronto’s future are “white, male homeowners over the age of 55...and youth are particularly underrepresented when it comes to deciding how the city will look and function.”
— Daniel Fusca, Metro

CivicSpark

Founded in 2015 as a chapter of CivicAction, CivicSpark is an organization dedicated to empowering a new generation of city builders. By providing a non-partisan platform, they will bring together university students across the region and develop creative solutions to real issues being faced by the GTHA. 

How?

Each year CivicSpark will host a series of workshops to refine and develop competitor's skills in research, critical analysis, and communication. In addition, we will connect competitor's to institutions across the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors.
