Building Youth Civic Engagement through Collaboration: report of the roundtable on youth voter engagement.

09/17/2012

The report details work undertaken in partnership with Elections Canada on youth voter engagement issues, including a day-long roundtable which took place earlier this year engaging 30 leaders from civil society, the private sector, government, educators, student leaders, and representatives of youth-serving organizations and the media.

Key policy directions within the report include the need for a more cohesive and multi-sectoral approach to youth voter engagement issues throughout Canada, as well as special focus on strategies to support education and engagement among an increasingly fragmented youth demographic.
