Waterloo Region Youth Council – Looking for Youth Councillors

In early 2017, Minister of Parliament Bardish Chagger created the Waterloo Riding Youth Council, comprised of 30 Waterloo youth aged 16-25. The purpose of this council is to help Minister Chagger understand youth perspectives on political issues affecting our community, give youth a place to voice their opinions, and to engage youth in politics.

The time commitment for councillors is approximately 1 hour per week of independent work on projects and event planning, and one meeting per month with Minister Chagger and the rest of the council. We are looking for youth who are passionate about issues in Canada, who have a diversity of life experiences, who are involved in our community, and who can bring unique perspectives to Minister Chagger and the council.

Applications for the 2018-19 council are now open – due February 11, 2018, at 23:59.  Follow the link below to apply.
