Teaching Citizenship, Democracy & Participation in Elections

Due to COVID-19, Elections Manitoba is not currently offering Your Power to Choose workshops. You will find a variety of other learning resources for teaching about democracy and elections on our website.

Your Power To Choose

An integrated education program developed by Elections Manitoba and educators, Your Power to Choose includes a curriculum guide with hands-on activities, in-class workshops and resources for running student elections.

Why Your Power to Choose:

  • Creates life-long learning skills and the habit of participation among Manitoba youth
  • Integrates the complete election experience with Manitoba’s grades 6, 9 and 11 social studies curricula
  • Adapts to many other classroom and learning levels, particularly grades 4 and 5
  • Focuses on interactive learning - students learn how to make informed choices, experience the impact and power of their choices
  • Features handouts, worksheets and support materials such as ballot boxes and voting screens
