Constituency Youth Council 2019-2020: 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 Markham-Thornhill 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 2019-2020 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 November 2019 to June 2020. 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.

I look forward to hearing from youth in our community.
