Our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has said that “young voices must be part of our decision making process” and that’s why I am launching a new initiative to bring youth together from across Winnipeg South to engage with the federal political process.
I want to hear from youth in the community and am inviting anyone from the ages of 16-23 to apply to the Winnipeg South Youth Council. As a part of the Liberal Government’s commitment to meaningful youth engagement in Canada’s government, we have already received the first wave of applications for the Prime Minister’s Youth Council, and now we are making it easier for young Canadians to have their say closer to home.
Applications for the Winnipeg South Youth Council are open until April 25, 2019, and will include youth from different schools, neighbourhoods 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.
If you want to join the Winnipeg South youth council, apply here!
