Environment and Climate Change Canada is looking for young people between the ages of 18 and 29 to become a member of the next Environment and Climate Change Youth Council.

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) is looking for young people in Canada between the ages of 18 and 29 to become a member of the next Environment and Climate Change Youth Council (ECCYC) by applying to an anticipatory selection process.

Applications are now being accepted.  

The youth council provides non-partisan advice to the minister and senior departmental executives on key environmental and climate issues, reads a press release from Nickel Belt MP Marc Sérre. 

The program will select 12 youth (Canadian citizens and permanent residents ages 18-29,) to join.  

Past members have had the opportunity to brief  Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, attend international conferences and provide feedback to decision makers on many issues including the Climate Literacy Strategy, the Environmental Racism strategy, and Canada’s net-zero strategy, continues the release. 

It also states the council is an opportunity to meet like-minded youth and policymakers, and learn more about  environmental issues facing our country and  our government’s policies to solve them.
