The Youth Advisory Committee advises and assists Regional Council, through the Executive Standing Committee, on how municipal policies, programs, and services affect youth, and challenge the areas where we can do better. Committee members regularly engage with youth throughout the municipality to:
• Help youth shape the future of our municipality
• Bring unheard voices to Regional Council
• Educate youth on policies and decisions that affect them
• Identify and remove barriers facing youth
• Help make our local government more diverse

Answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) are found here.
