CLC – Prime Minister’s Youth Council

Prime Minister’s Youth Council

Yesterday, PM Trudeau officially announced the launch for applications for the Prime Minister’s Youth Council.

The Youth Council will be structured to have young individuals participate and advise the PM on national issues such as employment, access to education, building stronger communities, climate change, and sustainability. It is our understanding that youth will drive part of the agenda, as well as advise on current priority issues for the government.

The Council will be composed of 30 young people ages 16-24 who will serve 2 year terms. All travel and expenses to participate will be covered by the PMO, who is dedicated to ensuring a diverse cohort of young people that represent all corners of Canada.

It would be amazing to have lots of young labour-minded folks apply – young people who are union members, the children of union members, who are active in community campaigns, and who have attended the union summer camps for teens across the country. images

Please share far and wide with young people in your community, and encourage awesome young activists that you know to apply. The PMO has asked that organizations with reach to youth in remote communities also help support the applications of young people who might not have internet access, by spreading the word and allowing access to any community computers so that young folks can fill out the application.

The application will be launched on July 22nd, 2016, and the first wave of applications are due August 12th, 2016. Applications will only be accepted online – no paper forms are available.

Find more information here: https://www.canada.ca/en/campaign/prime-ministers-youth-council.html – you can also sign up to directly receive information on the youth council by hitting the SIGN UP button on the main page.

BC FED – Get a job. But I already have one!

Get a job. But I already have one!

fightfor15bc

Yes, Christy Clark, working poverty is a real problem in BC. More than 100,000 workers living in Metro Vancouver are poor.

Today, a report titled Working Poverty in Metro Vancouver was released. The results are disturbing, but not surprising for those living in the Lower Mainland. Too many working people are struggling to get by. Telling people to ‘get a job’ doesn’t cut it.

The real solution to poverty wages is to end poverty wages by raising the minimum wage to $15/hr.

Help us end poverty wages in BC by signing the petition.

If you’ve already signed, tell your friends to sign too.

Because if you work, you shouldn’t be poor. 

Thanks for your support,

The Fight for $15
Team

Fight for $15 BC
