Youth from across the country meet this weekend to tackle that question.
Reflect on our country’s history. Imagine and define its future. Connect with other Canadians. Exactly 100 young adults age 19 to 24 from every corner of the country will be doing just that this weekend at the New Canada Conference.
This key conference is being held as part of events planned to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference, which led to the establishment of Canada. There’s an ambitious program in store for the weekend. It’s not hard to imagine the buzz of new ideas, the lively discussions, and all the great work that will be accomplished to concretely produce a whole new playbook of ideas for the Canada of the future. This bilingual blueprint intended for all Canadians will be drawn up in under 72 hours, so our young visionaries sure have their work cut out for them! And how lucky they are to get this rare chance to have a real impact on the country through their own eyes.
So, in your opinion, what values will define the Canada of tomorrow? What priorities should we set for ourselves? That should give you plenty of food for thought . . . and fuel for discussion!
