Samara is a non-partisan charitable organization that encourages Canadians to get involved with politics.
This year we're celebrating Everyday Political Citizens, unsung political heroes such as campaigners, activists, community organizers, and members of local riding associations who work through the political system to improve their communities, and whose contributions often go unrecognized.
We’re on the hunt for 308 inspiring people—at least one from each federal riding. Click through our interactive map. to find out if your riding is represented.
In January, a jury of amazing Canadians will pick two Everyday Political Citizens of 2013. Winners will receive a tablet stocked with Canadian books and music, and a chat with juror Rick Mercer! There are also great prizes in store for our nominators.
Do you know someone who fits the bill? Submit your nomination and give them the public kudos they deserve.
