Established by a group of young Canadians from across the country, we came together precisely because we were asking questions about Canadian democracy and how to be civically engaged – and decided to do something about it. All of us are learning about digital citizenship even as we promote it through our web portal and various online activities.
GLOCAL is a not-for-profit organization that promotes digital civic engagement through local participation and global understanding in Canada.
We seek to promote digital citizenship, youth engagement, information accessibility and civic knowledge mobilization in Canada.
Our digital initiatives and community outreach strive to improve the infrastructure and accessibility of public information in an effort to combat misinformation, information overload, and low-information rationality in the digital age.
As of 2022, GLOCAL is a not-for-profit, non-partisan, non-governmental organization whose operation is possible due largely to team members’ private funding and sweat equity.
As a result of limited government grants, we are appreciative of donation and aim to be cautious and transparent in our fundraising.
Any donation contributes to making a difference in civic engagement in Canada!
