The #CanadaWeWant Conference 2023
At this Conference we will continue to explore this key question: What do young people want for Canada's future? 160 youth and adult allies from every province and territory are invited to come together to take action on issues that are impacting young people. Together, conference delegates will discuss and study the issues of greatest relevance to Canadian youth, decide on concrete actions to take, and be supported to present their findings to key decision makers. As collaborators we need YOUR voice and recommendations to make an impact on issues impacting Canadian youth today.
Over these 5 days, participants will break out into various theme teams, discussing topics such healthy relationships, truth leading to reconciliation, mental health and so much more! They will spend time studying and discussing these issues while sharing their own lived experiences and building a safe space to express themselves. Towards the end of the conference, participants will develop actionable items and recommendations to be delivered directly to policy and decision makers in government and youth serving organizations at our National showcase, hosted by RBC in Downtown Toronto.
Be part of this fun and exciting event and bring the momentum back home to your community and help us build the #CanadaWeWant.
Please note that while some expenses will be covered there will be a fee associated with attending this years #CanadaWeWant.

Sharing the Stories Knowledge Exchanges
An opportunity for youth, adult allies and academics to come together to review the research and trends generated from the Sharing the Stories research and evaluation platform.
The one-to-one or one-to-a-few interactions between youth and/or between youth and adults. These interactions accumulate and can often result in bottom-up changes to policies and programs. We foster these interactions by working with other partners to create organic spaces and places for youth and/or adults to connect with one another. We support weekly youth groups across our network of partners.
