Constituency Youth Council 2022-2023
An opportunity to have your voices heard on policy and issues facing Canada
The CYC program is important to me because it allows youth to bring a new perspective on policy and issues affecting our communities. I know that the CYC in Scarborough Centre will work hard to be the youth voice for our community, and I intend to bring this perspective with me, every time I return to Ottawa. With this said, following the many successful policy discussions and projects undertaken by past Constituency Youth Councils, I am happy to announce the CYC 2022-2023 applications are now open.
What is the Constituency Youth Council?
The Constituency Youth Council is an opportunity for youth to learn about Canada’s political process, discuss their viewpoints on issues, and most importantly, get involved in their communities.
When does the program take place?
The Constituency Youth Council meets regularly throughout the year to share feedback and ideas and plan events and outreach activities.
Why is this important to me?
Giving youth a voice is vital to our government. A youth perspective brings a new light to issues touching our community, and our country.
How you can apply!
To apply, applicants must complete and submit an application form online.
I look forward to hearing from youth in our community.
