Experiences Canada 150&Me, a Canada 150 signature initiative, was a unique multi-destination youth event and series of regional forums for young people between the ages of 14 and 19, held across Canada over a three-month period culminating in Ottawa the week of Canada Day, 2017.
150&Me involved more than 3900 young Canadians in a national conversation about Canada’s future. The topics covered included: Environment; Human Rights; Relationship with Indigenous Communities; Canada’s Place in the World; Immigration, Diversity and Canadian Identity; Education and Innovation.
The Canada 150&Me Legacy bookis a fabulous keepsake highlighting the best of the Canada 150&Me visits to Vancouver, Montreal, Halifax, Winnipeg & Ottawa. Get a free digital download here, or purchase the print magazine on Blurb.
Experiences Canada is currently developing a new series of Youth Leadership Forums that will engage young Canadians in a more intensive exploration of the issues they care most about through week-long programs that include mentorship, leadership training, and hands on community service. We hope to launch the new program during the 2018-2019 school year.
