    Do you know your elected representatives?

    It is important to know who your elected representatives are when preparing for the Canadian Citizenship Exam in 2018. While confusing at first, government in Canada is actually quite simple!


    Here is an easy explanation:


    There are 3 levels of government in Canada:

    1. Federal 
    2. Provincial (or Territorial)
    3. Municipal 
    So, there are also 3 people who represent you at these different levels:
    1. Your MP (Member of Parliament) is your Federal Representative  
    2. Your MPP (or MLA, MNA, MHA) is your Provincial Representative 
    3. Your Councillor (or Alderman) is your Municipal Representative
    When you become a Canadian Citizen you will vote for these 3 different positions.
    • You will vote for an MP in a federal election. 
    • You will vote for an MPP (or MLA, MNA, MHA) in a provincial (or territorial) election. 
    • You will vote for a Councillor in a municipal election.

    • Review the material in different formats. Use Discover Canada, use Canadian Citizenship Made Easy,  use multiple choice tests found on the internet, use Youtube videos but do not only look at one type of format.
    • Do not leave studying until the last minute.  There is a lot of material in Discover Canada, and if you leave it until the last minute you will most certainly fail.
