Civics Boot Camp


Have you ever wanted to learn more about the City of Ottawa and its communities?

A Civics Boot Camp is an interactive and experiential program that targets people who are passionate about Ottawa. It is designed for those who want to know more about how the city works—people who have ideas for positive change but need inspiration, community support and/or knowledge to make it happen.

Participants connect with other people and institutions while creating long-lasting relationships. They learn civic navigation, engagement, and dialogue, helping them find their voice, and act by working together with the community on what matters to you for your city.

The Synapcity Civics Boot Camp is a completely free series of six three-hour evening sessions delivered over six weeks, running from April 18-May 23. This year’s boot camp will take place at the Atelier, Synapcity’s new home at Saint Paul University.

Applications are due before April 4th! Learn more and register at
