Young people have always played an important role in their communities. Today more than ever, young Canadians need a voice in Parliament, and I intend to bring their perspective with me every time I return to Ottawa.
The Constituency Youth Council (CYC) program allows young people to share their thoughts on policies and issues that affect their community while learning about the Canadian political process. As the Member of Parliament for Vimy, I am happy to announce that I will be accepting nominations for my CJC this fall!
What is CYC?
CYC is an opportunity for young people to learn about the Canadian political process, to discuss their views on issues and, most importantly, to get involved in their communities.
When will the program take place?
The CYC meets throughout the school year, starting this fall through June 2021. Meetings are held monthly in person or online depending on the pandemic situation.
Why is this important to me?
Giving a voice to young people is essential for our government. The Youth Perspective brings new insight into the issues that affect our community and our country.
