Our Canada Project (OCP)

The Our Canada Project (OCP) was the brain child of a diverse group of 22 youth from across Canada.  These youth were brought together for 48 hours to figure out how to inspire all youth from every area in Canada to be more responsible citizens. The answer: give youth a chance to share their voice and they will take action.  And so, the Our Canada Project was born.

We hope you will use this space to share with all Canadians the work you are doing, big or small, individually or collectively, to make Canada a better place. What’s your vision for a better Canada? What are you doing to make it come true? Share your story today.

Testimonials

“I would like to thank LSF on behalf of the students and staff at Kirby Centennial P.S. for providing us with very informative and motivating Our Canada Project (OCP) presentations to our grades 1 to 6 classrooms in the fall.  The OCP video had students reflecting upon what we already do to help sustain our planet.  My grade 3 class was truly engaged in creating their mural.  In the days that followed we had a very interesting discussion about how we could help the environment, including building bluebird boxes, creating a patch of milkweed for Monarch butterflies and growing vegetables.  This is a truly wonderful program that works beautifully with the Ontario science curriculum.”  – Teacher
