Opportunity to Establish a Rural Youth Advisory/Action Council/Committee, Parks and Recreation Ontario and Play Works

Deadline January 26, 2018

If you are from an Ontario community, with a population of less than 20,000 and that has not yet established a community-wide youth advisory/action council or committee, please read on. Note the deadline for response is Friday, January 26th.

Through a grant received from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Parks and Recreation Ontario, in partnership with Play Works (founder of the Youth Friendly Community Recognition Program), is supporting the development of youth advisory/action councils/committees throughout Ontario.

To date 10 councils have been established. Three new councils will be supported in the winter of 2018 through to the end of the 2018/2019 school year, and five more will be initiated in the spring of 2018 through to the end of the next school year.

If your community is interested in starting a council and wishes to be considered, please complete the survey monkey found here:

The deadline for submissions is Friday, January 26th.
