Constituency Youth Council 2018-2019: Now Accepting Applications

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 North is working hard to be the youth voice for our community, and I intend to bring this perspective with me, upon my 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 2018-2019 applications are now open! Scarborough North CYC will include youth between the age of 16-24 from different schools, neighborhoods and local associations. Once selected, the council will meet throughout the year to discuss issues that matter to members of our community and our country. Our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, emphasizes that “young voices must be part of our decision making process.”
