Description

Citizens of Tomorrow is an original approach to teaching students about municipal democracy. They will have the opportunity to visit places where the memory of the city and its history are preserved. Throughout the day, students will discover the citys history and the achievements of past mayors, have the experience of voting, and learn about democracy and city administration. Finally, they will get a sense of their future role as citizens.

Note: Activities can be done in class only if it is not possible for you to leave the classroom.

In collaboration with the Archives de Montral and the city council chairs office.
