For this to be successful, there must be an overall “vision for young people’s future” with an underlying set of coherent policies, services and resources dedicated by the government to address the specific needs and aspirations of this diverse group.
We strive to empower young people aged 35 and under to influence and inform the decisions that affect their lives and their communities. We promote and support young people to get involved in their communities locally, nationally, and internationally, to make a difference as young leaders, political advocates, electoral campaigners, decision-makers, and leaders. The country is currently facing unprecedented socioeconomic circumstances; however, it remains important that we continue to empower young people to create sustainable social and political change.
Our Youth Platform is implemented through a specially designed program including lectures, seminars, workshops, city tours focusing on appreciation of build environment and volunteering for social programs
Once elected, members of NCPC Youth Parliament can and may arrange to meet with elected Members of Parliament (MPs), and local Councillors, organize events, run campaigns, make speeches, hold debates, and ensure the views and interests of young people are listened to by decision makers.
Members of the NCPC Youth Parliament from across the Canada come together annually to take part in workshops, debate, create and change national manifesto policy, and network.
Join us to campaign on the issues that matter most to thousands of young people across the country. Together we can lobby the Canadian Parliament, and Provincial Governments to take action, and continue to press those whose decisions affect young people to listen to our voice. As someone who campaigns with the NCPC Youth Parliament, you can talk to other young people and your local press, and get them to see how their support for young people on these issues can make a difference.
Join the NCPC Youth Parliament community where you can help create a world where young people are respected and able to contribute, participate, and influence decisions that affect your lives.
