Share your voice: Apply now to join the Prime Minister’s Youth Council!


OTTAWA–GATINEAU, March 14, 2024

Are you between the ages of 16 and 24? Are you ready to share your voice and become an advisor to the federal government and the Prime Minister of Canada?

The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, and the Honourable Marci Ien, Minister of Women and Gender Equality and Youth, are excited to kick off the recruitment campaign for the seventh cohort of the Prime Minister’s Youth Council (PMYC). The Government of Canada is looking for engaged young Canadians from diverse backgrounds and regions to step forward and join in shaping the future. Applications will be accepted online until April 14, 2024.

The Prime Minister’s Youth Council is more than just a group; it is a platform for young Canadians to provide non-partisan advice that will inform the Government of Canada’s approach to addressing key issues. We are seeking individuals who are eager to identify challenges and opportunities, and drive meaningful change.

The Council offers valuable advice on various pressing topics, including but not limited to the environment, housing, affordability, climate change, public health, mental health, reconciliation and immigration. Your voice matters, and together, we can make a difference.

The Government of Canada remains committed to fostering ongoing dialogue with youth from all corners of the country.

In the search for the next cohort of PMYC members, the Government of Canada is reaching out to youth directly and to youth-serving organizations to ensure the meaningful participation of Indigenous youth, youth with disabilities, NEET (not in education, employment or training) youth, youth living in rural or remote areas, and other equity-deserving and under-represented groups to ensure representation from all walks of life.

The Prime Minister’s Youth Council will help shape a future that reflects the aspirations and diversity of all Canadians.
