About the 2020-2021 Constituency Youth Council
An opportunity to have your voices heard on policy and issues facing Canada
The Constituency Youth Council (CYC) program is important to me because it allows youth (14-26) to bring a new perspective on policy and issues affecting our communities.
I know that the CYC in Halifax West will work hard to be the youth voice for our community, and I intend to bring this perspective with me, every time I have discussions with my federal colleagues and participate in Parliament.
I am happy to announce the CYC 2020-2021 applications are now open and look forward to many successful policy discussions and projects that may be undertaken by this Constituency Youth Council.
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, until June 2021. The meetings are expected to occur monthly (socially distanced, and/or online).
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.
