How do we foster civic engagement and youth leadership in Canada.
Youth between the ages of 18 and 30.
On the occasion of Canada's G7 Presidency, we were delighted to partner with hubs across the G7 to consult and convey the priorities of young people and principles for action on preparing for the jobs of the future - one of the core themes for Canada's Presidency. This consultative process was initiated and led by the Ottawa Hub with the support of hubs across the G7. By invitation of the Canadian Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, the Ottawa Shapers presented the preliminary findings of these consultations at the G7 Ministerial on Preparing for Jobs of the Future in Montreal. We were then invited to present our final report at the Youth 7 (Y7) Summit in Ottawa.
