The Samara Centre for Democracy

Registered Name: The Samara Project

Business Number: 843093295RR0001

The Samara Centre for Democracy is dedicated to reconnecting citizens to politics. Established as a charity in 2009, we have become Canada’s most trusted, non-partisan champion of increased civic engagement and a more positive public life. Samara’s research and educational programming shines new light on Canada’s democratic system and encourages greater political participation across the country, to build a better politics, and a better Canada, for everyone.  A samara is the winged “helicopter" seed that falls from the maple tree. A symbol of Canada, it is also a reminder that from small seeds, big ideas can grow.
