About this event

At this Conference we will continue to explore this key question: What do young people want for Canada's future? 160 youth and adult allies from every province and territory are invited to come together to take action on issues that are impacting young people. Together, conference delegates will discuss and study the issues of greatest relevance to Canadian youth, decide on concrete actions to take, and be supported to present their findings to key decision makers. As collaborators we need YOUR voice and recommendations to make an impact on issues impacting Canadian youth today.

Over these 5 days, participants will break out into various theme teams, discussing topics such healthy relationships, truth leading to reconciliation, mental health and so much more! They will spend time studying and discussing these issues while sharing their own lived experiences all while building a safe space to express themselves. Towards the end of the conference, participants will develop actionable items and recommendations to be delivered directly to policy and decision makers in government and youth serving organizations at out National showcase, hosted by RBC in Downtown Toronto.

All expenses will be paid (travel, food, accommodation, etc.) Be part of this fun and exciting event and bring the momentum back home to your community and help us build the #CanadaWeWant.
