Following the success of last year’s Constituency Youth Council, I am excited to announce that the 2017/2018 application period is now open!
I want to hear from ambitious youth in Mississauga-Malton who are eager to get involved and engage with the Canadian federal political process. Together, we will work to create a better future Canada.
Applications for the Mississauga-Malton Youth Council will be open to youth in the community between the ages of 16-24 until Friday December 8th, 2017. Once selected, the Council will meet every 1-2 months, where you will have the opportunity to voice issues that matter to you, your community, and our country.
If you’re interested in joining the Mississauga-Malton Youth Council, apply here!
