A majority of Canadians over the age of 18 believe that youth have too little influence on public policy; however, 7 in 10 also believe that young people are not prepared to be civic leaders in their communities, according to a poll commissioned by 7 national youth serving agencies, including The Students Commission. See press release.

We think this means that not enough adults have seen what youth from organizations across Canada achieved February 27th to March 5th, 2018 at our #Canada We Want Conference. Youth delegates generated recommendations they sent to the federal government to provide input into a youth policy for Canada, as well as developed plans for community service projects that they can do in their community.
