Constituency Youth Council seeking local applicants

Marcus Powlowski, Member of Parliament for the riding of Thunder Bay – Rainy River, invites all young Canadians from the ages of 15-24 to apply to the 2020-2021 Constituency Youth Council.
“The Constituency Youth Council is an opportunity for youth to learn about Canada’s political process, discuss their viewpoints on issues, and most importantly, get involved in their communities. Projects undertaken by past Constituency Youth Councils have ranged from food drives to multimedia projects. Furthermore, past councils have discussed the importance of issues involving climate change, gender equality, and youth employment. This year’s council will have the chance to build on these discussions and embark on projects that will positively impact our community.
The Constituency Youth Council meets for the duration of a full school year term, from October 2020 to June 2021.
Giving youth a voice is vital to our government. A youth perspective brings a new light to issues touching our community, and our country. The CYC in Thunder Bay – Rainy River is working hard to be the youth voice for our community, and as your Member of Parliament, I intend to bring this perspective with me, upon my return to Ottawa.
To apply, applicants must complete and submit an application form which is available at the link below, on my Member of Parliament Facebook page, or on my website. The deadline to apply is October 8, 2020.”
