The Municipality received the following information from the Forum for Young Canadians:

Forum for Young Canadians - House of CommonsWhat’s It About

Forum is about one week that may very well change the rest of your life.

It’s about giving smart and engaged 15 – 19 year olds a chance to experience Parliament Hill and supports them in using their voice. In Ottawa, on the Hill, with other equally dynamic youth.

It’s about getting inside—deep inside—Canadian politics and public affairs and seeing what running the country looks like up close. It’s about learning how to collaborate and share ideas, then turn them into real community action.

Beyond the history books, beyond the news channel and beyond classroom debates, there’s a lot to discuss. Your voice can make an impact now.

Forum is also about inspiring youth to understand the dynamics and issues of their communities for three month before coming to Ottawa. For six months after their Ottawa experience youth are supported in having an impact and expanding their networks.

If you have ideas, if you think, read and talk about what’s going on in the world. If you have something to say—say it at Forum. Be a Voice.
