The Globe and Mail’s 2017 Young Lions Qualifying Competitions comprised of 383 teams, vying for the chance to compete at the official Young Lions Competition at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
The non-profit that was selected was Samara Canada. Samara Canada is dedicated to reconnecting citizens to politics. Established as a charity in 2009, they’ve become Canada’s most trusted, non-partisan champion of increased civic engagement and a more positive public life. Samara Canada’s research and educational programming shines new light on Canada’s democratic system and encourages greater political participation across the country to build better politics, and a better Canada, for everyone.
As Canada’s only official representative, The Globe and Mail sponsored each winning Gold team to attend the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, and represent Canada in the Young Lions Competitions, June 17- 24 2017.
