CPAC and the RCGS launch the Route 338 multimedia project on democracy in Canada
With the September 18 Ottawa launch of a new educational tool called Route 338, the Cable Public Affairs Channel aims to help all Canadians understand political process and make their voices heard.
“Democracy is precious but fragile, even in mature democracies like Canada,” says Catherine Cano, president and general manager of CPAC. “CPAC Route 338 is a vital resource, because the earlier we study and learn about our democracy, the better our chance to have a society that is curious, knowledgeable and engaged.”
The multimedia project includes a website where visitors can explore an interactive map with profiles of all 338 federal electoral districts and their current MPs. CPAC also partnered with the RCGS to create a Route 338 Giant Floor Map that will tour schools across the country, a downloadable “tiled” version of the map and 11 free, curriculum-linked lesson plans to help students in Grades 1-12 learn the different levels of government, the functions of each and much more.
