Congress of Aboriginal Peoples
National Youth Council
The CAP National Youth Council (NYC) consists of provincial and territorial youth representatives from across Canada who are tasked with advocating for the rights, needs and interests of Off-Reserve Indigenous youth at the national level.
The CAP NYC is especially concerned with the socioeconomic factors that affect Off-Reserve Indigenous peoples in Canada. As a result, CAP NYC wanted to explore how Indigenous youth in Canada can get actively engaged in the policy processes that impact their lives, families and communities.
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented Indigenous youth with unique challenges across the country. This website allows CAP to connect youth with resources and information to help them navigate this difficult time, while also maintaining a vital sense of community.
