THE RICHMOND HILL CONSTITUENCY YOUTH COUNCIL HAS OFFICIALLY FORMED

October 25, 2016 – RICHMOND HILL

Majid Jowhari, Member of Parliament for the riding of Richmond Hill, is pleased to announce that Richmond Hill’s new Constituency Youth Council (CYC) has been officially formed. Following weeks of careful deliberation and review of the outstanding applications our office has received, we have now finalised the members of our CYC.

As part of the Canadian government’s commitment to meaningful youth engagement, the Richmond Hill Youth Council will officially convene for our first meeting in mid-November, details to follow. The CYC will include youth from different schools, neighbourhoods, and local associations. Once selected, the Council will meet several times throughout the year to discuss a number of issues that could include climate change, access to employment, LGBTQ issues, peacekeeping, and other topics that matter most to the community.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, has said that “young voices must be part of our decision making process”; That is why MP Jowhari has launched this new initiative to bring together 10 to 20 young people from the Richmond Hill riding, in order to engage them, and listen to them on the issues that matter to youth in our riding. It is important that young Canadians have their say and can share their views and ideas with the government.

MP Jowhari is looking forward to learning more about the views of youth in Richmond Hill through our activities and two-way dialogue on the CYC. The CYC will also provide a great networking opportunity for our members and help them to better understand the Canadian political process as they take part in it:

I am delighted to engage the young people from my constituency! Meeting and listening to them will be very educational for all of us, whether on political decision-making or issues that concern young people of today.

– Majid Jowhari, MP Richmond Hill.
