Explaining elections to young people: Check out this new resource!

19 September 2022

Categories: Worth exploring

Even if they can’t vote yet, young people still have questions about what happens during elections. Les As de l’info is a website that can help them find the answers. It includes a host of articles written especially for them. 

This new resource is designed to explain current events to young people aged 8 to 12. A special feature on elections is currently available to help them follow the election campaign. Some of the educational content, including a video on the voting process, was prepared in collaboration with Élections Québec. 

The site also includes a section for teachers (“Pour les profs”) that contains numerous resources for classroom use. Various activities are available for introducing students to key aspects of our democracy during this election period.
