Citizen Participation Toolkit


The Citizen Participation Toolkit offers various types of information on citizen participation in local governance and maintains a database of cases from all over the world of participatory governance, including tools used and lessons learned.

In this way, local authorities and civil society organisations can learn from each others’ experiences. The database is searchable by region, scale, focus, and actors.

At the Centre for Civic Governance, our goal is to strengthen Canadian communities through sharing best practices, providing tools for locally elected leaders, and progressive policy analysis. We strive to provide knowledge and information to make real and positive social change.
