Premier’s Council on Youth Opportunities

Want to make a difference in the lives of Ontario youth? Bring the voice of your peers to the table. Apply to become a member of the Premier’s Council on Youth Opportunities. We want to hear from you on how best to improve our programs and services for youth so that young people in Ontario have every opportunity to succeed.

Things to know about the council:

The Premier’s Council on Youth Opportunities is a 25-member group of youth (ages 16 to 25), young professionals and leaders. The council gives advice to the Premier of Ontario and the Minister of Children and Youth Services on issues affecting youth. The council also gives advice on how the government can improve programs and services for youth.

Council members also talk to youth in their home communities to bring even more voices into government decision-making.
