Our City: Youth Engagement in Local Politics

  • WeWork 1 University Avenue Toronto, ON, M5J 2P1 Canada (map)

Let's talk about youth representation and engagement in Toronto politics!

Join a roundtable of young trailblazing city-builders and community leaders to discuss youth representation or lack thereof, in municipal governance. 

With the recent cuts to the size of Toronto City Council, the topic of adequate and meaningful representation has become a point of interest to many voters and leaders alike. But what does representation look like to young leaders who are seldom represented in decision-making processes, especially those which have direct impacts on their futures? Will this impact youth voter turnout on October 22nd in a province that saw a 58% voter turnout rate in June?

Help us find the answers on Wednesday, October 10!
