I am happy to announce that applications are now open for the Constituency Youth Council 2018-2019.
The CYC program is important to me because it allows youth to bring their perspective on policy and issues affecting our communities. This is the third year for the Nipissing-Timiskaming CYC. I know this group always works hard to represent the youth voice for our community, and my goal is to bring this perspective with me to Ottawa.
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 from September 2018 to June 2019. There will be up to five meetings throughout the year.
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.
