The Constituency Youth Council (CYC) is an initiative meant to engage youth in your riding by
organizing meetings and facilitating discussions and concrete actions on the issues that matter
to them. It allows youth to learn about Canada’s political process first-hand, discuss their
viewpoints on issues facing the country, and get involved in their communities.
The aim of CYCs is to ensure the voices of youth across the country are being heard. Our
government believes that youth must play an important part in our country’s success.
The Constituency Youth Council is a volunteer opportunity in Markham- Thornhill for youth aged 14 yrs – 26 yrs. The program runs from September to June and allows youth to have their voice heard on policy issues facing Canada. This program is your chance to learn about Canada’s political process and most importantly, get involved in your community. I know that past councils in Markham- Thornhill worked hard to be the youth voice for our community, and I bring this perspective with me, every time I return to Ottawa.
