Great idea! Good luck!
Dear Ottawa Residents.... What if you had a roadmap to making a difference in the City?
Dear Ottawa Residents,
What are you passionate about? What do you wish you could change in Ottawa? Now ask yourself... What are you going to do to make that happen? What CAN you do?
Having witnessed the thirst for answers from Ottawans during last year's pilot program, the Citizens Academy of Ottawa has been working with a group of dedicated volunteers to define what it is a citizen in Ottawa needs to know to be effective to make change in the city. Whether your idea is big or small, street-level or city-wide, it helps to understand the structures and processes that are in place, and how to navigate them.
This year's Civics Boot Camp will take place October 17th to November 19th, with three different learning session topics that will help you answer
Who makes decisions at City Hall?
How do I get a say in how my municipal taxes are spent?
If I have ideas for land-use in my neighbourhood, who do I talk to and when?
Apply to participate today, and learn more about Governance, Municipal Budgeting and Land-Use Planning in the city of Ottawa. It is completely FREE for participants. Modest transportation and dependent stipends available.
