Date: Saturday, July 7
Location: Toronto City Hall, Council Chambers
The purpose of this cross-country series is to reach as many young Canadians as possible and hear their diverse perspectives in an inclusive setting, with the goal of:
- Identifying issues important to youth and solutions to improve the lives of young Canadians;
- Examining the supports that enable all youth, regardless of their background, to be Canada’s leaders; and
- Understanding how youth want their voices to be heard and how youth want to influence the Government of Canada’s actions and decisions.
