Apathy is Boring was founded in 2004, when a choreographer, a filmmaker, and a fashion photographer met at a party. Troubled by how few of their friends were actively participating in Canada's democracy, they started an online campaign to mobilize youth to vote during the 2004 federal election.

Today, we work year-round to support and educate youth to become active and contributing citizens in Canada's democracy. Our vision is a Canada where every single young person is a change maker in their everyday lives and is meaningfully involved and included at every level of democracy. This is more than just voting. It is about setting up youth to take charge of the conditions they live in.
