    Stronger Democracy. Better Canada.


    A donation to Samara is in support of democracy and greater political participation across the country to build better politics, and a better Canada, for everyone. 

    Samara has become Canada's most trusted, non-partisan champion of increased civic engagement and a more positive public life. Your gift today will transform Canada's democratic system and assist in encouraging greater political participation across the country.  

    Make an even bigger impact by becoming a monthly donor

By focusing on building the capacity of youth to become champions within their own partisan and non-partisan political environments, they have started a ripple that will travel far and continue to gain momentum."

     rick-mercer-cropped_headshot.jpg“I love Samara. They’re an amazing charity. Their entire reason for being is to inspire Canadians to become more involved in democracy. What’s not to love? They’re not  stuffy; they have a great sense of humour. If you love politics you can spend hours on their website.”
