Canada’s future is sitting in our classrooms. Our youth have an important role to play in defining where our country goes in the coming years, and I feel it is incredibly important to engage with and hear from our young people. Our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau said it best when he said that “young voices must be part of our decision making process” and that’s why I am excited to launch the Oakville Youth Council.
The Youth Council is a way for me to engage directly with young people in our community on federal issues and policies. I want to hear from youth and I am inviting any high school student in the riding to apply to the 2nd Oakville Youth Council.
Council members will include youth from different schools, neighborhoods and local associations. Once selected, the Council will meet several times through the year to discuss issues that matter to you, your community and your country. Applications are open until October 6th.
If you would like to join our Youth Council, I encourage you to apply here. I look forward to working with the new council!
