Why Support the Canada We Want
National conferences provide an opportunity for young people to have a say in the issues that effect them. In fact, there are are a number of positive outcomes associated with national issues-focused gatherings including increased self-esteem, improved community engagement and healthier inter-personal relationships. Experiencing diversity that young people do not encounter in their home community leads to personal growth and a desire to contribute. Many young people have cited our conferences as life-changing events that have led to remarkable positive change. Each young person will be asked to raise $250.00 to attend the conference. This represents 40% of the costs associated with hosting and delivering the conference. The Students Commission will be subsidizing the difference and providing travel money through Exchanges Canada's Youth Forums Program.
