In 2007, the United Nations officially declared September 15 as the International Day of Democracy. This date commemorates the support by the UN, in 1997, of the government effort to promote democracy and democratic rights worldwide.

Each year, international organizations, states and cities celebrate the International Day of Democracy by organizing events and activities to involve their citizens. 

Elections Montreal is proud to commemorate the International Day of Democracy of September 15, 2023, with activities focusing on citizen participation and elections.
