About CIDD

The Canadian Institute for Defence of Democracies (CIDD) is a think tank based in Toronto, Ontario. Established in 2023 in response to the current global political climate, characterized by the decline of democracy and the rise of authoritarian regimes, CIDD is committed to advancing democratic values. Our mission is to provide valuable insights to the public and policymakers regarding Canada’s role in promoting democracy domestically and internationally. Managed by early career professionals and youth, CIDD offers distinct perspectives contributing to informed discourse on crucial issues. Our non-partisan and independent approach enables young leaders to cultivate critical thinking, research, and advocacy skills, fostering a stronger foundation for democratic engagement.

CIDD presents an exciting opportunity for students and recent graduates with a keen interest in politics to build connections, showcase their creative ideas, and influence public policy.

All positions are remote and unpaid. However, events will be held in person.
