Prime Minister wants to hear from young Canadians

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is looking for advice. And he wants to hear from a special group of Canadians about how to make the country a better place.

Until April 10, 2022, the Prime Ministers Youth Council (PMYC) will be accepting applications for new members. And young Canadians, ages 16-24, who want to share their ideas about issues important to them are encouraged to apply.

About the PMYC

The PMYC was created by Trudeau  to give Canada’s youth a platform and process to add their voice to policies being legislated and implemented. Approximately 30 young people are chosen from all backgrounds across the country. Members typically serve a two-year mandate.

The council meets several times a year to discuss issues affecting them and millions of other young Canadians. Issues have included promoting equality, providing support and opportunities for marginalized Canadians, fighting climate change, and most recently, how to communicate with youth about the Covid-19 pandemic and vaccination. The Council then provides advice to federal ministers and government officials on how to address those issues. Key recommendations from the PMYC were included in last year’s federal budget. 

How to Apply and Selection Process

The selection process will be in three stages:

  1. The online application is a combination of multiple-choice and long-answer questions about school, work and life experience;
  2. Applicants who advance will then be invited to participate in a video interview;
  3. Final candidates will then be selected.

A background check and security clearance will be required as part of the selection process. Applicants must be between 16-24.
