Description
Student Vote lets students experience the voting process themselves and build the habits of active and engaged citizenship. Students learn about government and the electoral process, as well as the current election issues, parties and candidates through classroom learning, campaign activities, media consumption and family dialogue. On Student Vote Day, students act as election officials and co-ordinate a vote for the election candidates running in their school’s electoral district. Teachers can register online to receive activity guides, campaign posters, electoral district maps, ballots and ballot boxes.

Description
A free online course created by TRAC Tenant Resource and Advisory Centre and the Justice Education Society. Designed for first-time renters, the course covers both practical and legal topics to consider before deciding to rent. Students can complete activities such as creating a budget, thinking about their housing needs, preparing a list of references, writing a cover letter and pet resume, and ordering a credit report. The course is video-based, and sections can be viewed in any order. Students who complete the course and pass the final exam earn a certificate that can be presented to landlords when they apply for tenancy. By completing the course, students will be better equipped to find rental housing and succeed in their tenancies. Core skills, such as financial literacy, smart decision making, effective communication, and problem solving are a key focus of the material.
