Canada’s Youth Policy What We Heard Report Released


 In 2018, the Government of Canada launched a national conversation with youth. More than 5,000 young Canadians discussed the issues that affect their lives, the types of supports they need to succeed, and the ways they wish to be engaged. They identified six priority areas: Leadership and Impact; Health and Wellness; Innovation, Skills and Learning; Employment; Truth and Reconciliation; and Environment and Climate Action. Canada’s youth policy represents a whole-of-government approach aimed at improving youth outcomes and involving young people in federal decision-making. Starting in 2020, and every four years thereafter, the Government of Canada will release a report highlighting the state of youth in Canada.
