The National Youth Leadership and Innovation Strategy Summit is a significant opportunity for Canada’s top young talent from across the country to work alongside leadership development organizations, employers and government to create Canada’s first national strategy for youth leadership and innovation. This gathering will foster a national dialogue to understand and develop Canada’s capacity to develop young leaders and innovators.

This Summit has no cost to participate (summit meals and registration are free-of-charge) and will include young leaders and stakeholder organizations from across Canada. There is also some funding available for participants in need of additional financial support for travel and accommodations.

We expect more participants than spots at the conference (we can accommodate no more than 300 participants). We also intend to create an environment that welcomes a diverse group from across Canada to the Summit. Participants are asked to fill in a brief application which will be processed and approved. This will be done on a rolling basis so don’t wait to apply.
