Apply to become a member of the Prime Minister’s Youth Council
Article / July 21, 2016
Are you between the ages of 16 and 24? Do you want to engage with the Prime Minister and other young people from across the country to shape Canada?
The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Canada’s Minister of Youth, has launched the very first Prime Minister’s Youth Council. Approximately 30 youth from all across Canada will meet directly with the Prime Minister to provide non-partisan advice on national issues such as employment, access to education, building stronger communities, climate and clean growth, and many others.
Now is your chance to have your voice heard! If you want the Prime Minister to listen to what you have to say on any or all of these issues, apply to become a member of the Prime Minister’s Youth Council today. The Prime Minister is looking for youth who have been engaged in their communities as well as those who have not yet had the opportunity to do so, representing the diversity of Canada. Because we recognize that everyone’s perspective is unique and valuable, every young person who puts him or herself forward will be considered.
It only takes 30 minutes of your time to have a chance at representing Canadian youth from coast to coast to coast. Don’t miss out, apply now!
Through the same application or through the “Stay Connected” link, you can also sign up for additional opportunities to engage with the Government of Canada on a variety of issues, even if you are not applying for the Prime Minister’s Youth Council at this time.
