Local Government Week

Email this page

This year Local Government Week takes place October 15-21, 2017.

Local Government Week aims to increase youth and public awareness about the important role local government plays in our communities.

The week provides a range of opportunities, particularly for Grades 5 and 10, to educate students on the operation and importance of local civic institutions.

Some examples of what communities and schools can do to celebrate local government:

  • Debate a school board trustee on a school issue
  • Hold a Mayor for a Day student essay contest
  • Host a mock council
  • Tour your Town Hall
  • Organize a “Lunch and Learn” on local government services

While we celebrate Local Government Week from October 15-21 this year, we encourage schools and municipalities to participate in local government activities throughout the school year.
