On April 10th, the Union will hold its first annual general convention to encourage youth participation in policymaking, recognize the work of active high school students, inform students of varying issues (ranging from climate change to treatment of indigenous people) and to get the gears turning for communication between students and activists/government members and other stakeholders.
To accomplish these goals, the Unions has devised numerous activities including a speakers series with Members of Parliament, Trustees, activists and others, a networking session to find like-minded peers and talk about issues with experts, a Q&A session brought to you by the Social Issues Committee about the Water Crisis in Indigenous Communities, an awards ceremony to recognize student excellence and more.
Join us to learn, grow and become more active in your community. The convention will be 4 to 6 hours long but you can just join us for the parts that you find interesting. A full agenda will be posted soon.
