What is a Youth Policy?
A youth policy is a commitment to create a vision for youth – by youth, which can guide the priorities and actions of governments and society and ensure that youth voices are heard and respected.
The Government of Canada wants to make this commitment and create a Youth Policy that will be a tool to help achieve goals that are important to youth and that will have a meaningful, long-lasting impact for all young Canadians.
They are seeking input from young Canadians to...
- identify issues important to youth and solutions to improve the lives of young Canadians;
- examine the supports that enable all youth, regardless of their background, to be Canada’s leaders; and
- understand how youth want their voices to be heard and how youth want to influence the Government of Canada’s actions and decisions.
