Open Democracy Project has grown out of the Canadian civic tech movement. We're a community of volunteers, donors and municipal election campaigners that have come together driven by a shared vision — providing expert advice and powerful tools to any campaign team running for municipal office and maintaining an open platform to build on that knowledge from one election to the next. Our Fall 2016 crowdfunding campaign raised $31K to launch DemocracyKit and the first version release date is April 25, 2017. Read more about the launch story and our Q1 update.

We now have meeting weekly at Civic Tech Toronto and Civic Tech Ottawa and a team starting up in Calgary. We're in the process of drafting the strategic plan for the Open Democracy Project and want your input! This session will be hands-on and will ask participants to give feedback on the Open Democracy Project structure and plans to grow in Canada and abroad.
