  • Apply now for the Prime Minister’s Youth Council

March 2022

The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, and the Honourable Marci Ien, Minister of Women and Gender Equality and Youth, are inviting Canadians aged 16 to 24, from every region, background and lived experience, to apply online for the Prime Minister’s Youth Council at before midnight on April 10.

Council members provide non-partisan advice to guide federal ministers and government officials on a wide range of issues that matter to them and their peers, such as promoting equality and protecting rights; enhancing supports for mental health; fighting climate change; and supporting Indigenous communities.

During the pandemic, for example, the Council has advised how best to communicate effectively with youth about COVID-19 and vaccinations, and helped develop solutions to ensure marginalized youth can access mental health supports in their communities. Council recommendations on key issues, like the diabetes epidemic in Canada and high-speed internet access for all, were also included in Budget 2021.
