Young Greens of Canada Council

The purpose of the Young Greens of Canada (YGC) is to:

  • support the Green Party in their efforts to elect candidates to the House of Commons;
  • ensure a youth voice is part of debating and forming legislation in Canada’s Parliament;
  • ensure a youth voice is part of developing the policy, positions, and platforms of the Party;
  • facilitate the involvement of young Canadians and encourage youth-friendly structures and atmosphere within the YGC and the Party more broadly; and
  • ensure the Principles of the Global Greens Charter that reference young people are respected and prioritized.

As the governance body of the YGC, the YGC Council provides leadership and representation for the Young Greens membership. In this role, they are responsible for ensuring that the above aims are being met with the support of staff, and for providing the strategic direction needed to achieve them. This means making decisions on strategic goals and advising on the budget, advocating for youth both within the Party and out, and spearheading a diverse array of projects aimed at growing the Young Greens movement and encouraging youth engagement in politics.
