Evidence for Democracy logo


A Dedicated Science Advocacy Organization
Evidence for Democracy is a grassroots organization promoting the transparent use of scientific evidence in government decision-making.

Evidence for Democracy believes evidence-informed decision-making is critical to democracy, and the health and prosperity of all Canadians.

This belief is what shapes our everyday work.

Our goal is to empower a science community and Canadian public that are equipped to engage with public policy to help ensure that science and evidence are not sidelined in government decision-making.

In 2012, the federal government was making cuts to federal science programs, muzzling scientists and shutting down science facilities. 

That July, Death of Evidence rallies sent a clear message: transparent, evidence-informed decision -making is critical for a strong democracy. 

Evidence for Democracy is powered by change-makers who are passionate about evidence-informed decision-making in public policy.
