Empowering young people to become Canadian citizens

Are you a young newcomer and want to learn more about your civic rights and citizenship? There’s a new online venture, CitizenshipCounts.ca from the Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (funded by Citizenship and Immigration).

The Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants wants to empower young people under the age of 18 across Canada to take control of their citizenship status by highlighting the benefits of becoming a Canadian citizen, showing young people how to apply, and helping them study for the citizenship test. CitizenshipCounts.ca will walk a young person through the different sections of the Discover Canada citizenship guide, and provide study resources like quizzes, review questions and flashcards. Youth can also earn badges as they learn, to help keep them on track.

CitizenshipCounts.ca will be launched nationally in October with a live website and a mobile app for youth about Canadian citizenship. For more information visit, see CitizenshipCounts.ca or http://www.youtube.com/user/citizenshipcounts.
