I am happy to announce that I will be launching my first ever Constituency Youth Council (CYC). 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 Egmont 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, I am happy to announce the CYC 2021 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 for the duration of a full school year term, from January 2021 to June 2021. The meetings occur once a month.
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.
