Our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has said that “young voices must be part of our decision making process” and that’s why I am launching a new initiative to bring youth together from across Brampton East to engage with the federal political process.
I want to hear from youth in our community and am inviting anyone from the ages of 14-22 to apply to the Brampton East Youth Council. As a part of the Government’s commitment to meaningful youth engagement in Canada’s government, we are making it easier for young Canadians to have their say closer to home.
The Council will include youth from different schools, neighborhoods and local associations. Once selected, the council will meet several times through the year to discuss issues that matter to you, your community and your country.
The Brampton East Youth Council applications for the upcoming year are open until September 22nd, 2017.
Please stay tuned for its activities through this website, or the Facebook page!
(Application process open for 2017-2018)

We hosted our first “MP for a Day” in February 2016, and our second in June 2017. We are now launching ROUND 3!
I am inviting all youth, 16-24 years of age, from across Brampton, to apply to be an MP for a day. At my own personal expense, two chosen youth will get the chance to come to Ottawa to see what it’s like to be a Member of Parliament.
I was lucky enough to have some of the best personal and career mentors in people like Minister Navdeep Bains. It is why I continually advocate for and hope to create the best opportunities for youth, whether it be through increased government funding for youth programming, the Brampton East Youth Council, or this initiative.
I hope to receive your application before May 18th. Please note that if you have applied in previous years, we encourage you to submit an application again this year. If you have any questions, please contact my Parliament Hill office.
