The Canada We Want Conference Series

#CanadaWeWant Conference

Since 2017, the #CanadaWeWant Youth Movement Conference series has empowered young people coast to coast to coast to turn knowledge into action and action into knowledge. This year’s conference will bring together 150 youth and adult allies from every province and territory. The focus will be to explore social issues through four core frameworks: Truth and Reconciliation, Addressing Structural Racism, Children’s Rights, and the social inclusion of youth living in Rural, Remote and Northern communities. The conference will be held February 27-March 4 2019 at YMCA Cedar Glen.

Event Services

Our team can work with you and your organization to plan, develop, execute and evaluate your entire event. One of our strengths in youth-focused event planning and management is being able to quickly, efficiently, and effectively bring together everything needed to ensure the success of your program.

Workshops

We work with partners and youth to deliver interactive capacity building opportunities for all audiences. Workshops are tailored for audiences based on the content shared.

Conferences

We deliver one to seven day conferences for youth and adult allies. The conferences are geared to generating and influencing community and systems level changes through direct youth recommendations and the development of community action projects.

Sharing the Stories Knowledge Exchanges

An opportunity for youth, adult allies and academics to come together to review the research and trends generated from the Sharing the Stories research and evaluation platform.

Fine-Grain Interactions

The one-to-one or one-to-a-few interactions between youth and/or between youth and adults. These interactions accumulate and can often result in bottom-up changes to policies and programs. We foster these interactions by working with other partners to create organic spaces and places for youth and/or adults to connect with one another. We support weekly youth groups across our network of partners.
