Your MP wants to hear from youth in the community and is inviting all youth from grades 9-12 to apply to the new Constituency Youth Council. As a part of a commitment to meaningful youth engagement in Canada’s government, we have already received the first wave of applications for the Prime Minister’s youth council, and now we are making it easier for young Canadians to have their say, closer to home, with their Member of Parliament.
The Constituency Youth Council is open for applications until October 15, 2017 and will include youth from different schools, neighborhoods and local associations. Once selected, the council will meet several times, through the year, to discuss important issues that matter to you, your community and your country. Following the example of our Prime Minister and Minister of Youth, Justin Trudeau, the feedback gathered in our discussions will be used to understand the perspective of youth in the decisions the government makes.
