Led by Indigenous youth for Indigenous youth.

Welcome to
Indigenous Youth Voices.

This initiative, led by Indigenous youth and for Indigenous youth, seeks to answer
the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call-to-Action 66:

We call upon the federal government to establish multi-year funding for community-based youth organizations to deliver programs on reconciliation, and establish a national network to share information and best practices.

Our mission is to seek the advice and support from Indigenous youth from across Canada, in order to provide a report and recommendations to the Minister of Crown- Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs, the Honourable Carolyn Bennett. To translate this information into a report that includes best practices, it needs to be as reflective and inclusive of all Indigenous youth and children and their realities. We want to unite the voices of Indigenous youth across Canada and maintain our independence, freedom and unification as young people.

We are working to maximize the voices of First Nations, Inuit and Métis youth - whether you are part of an Indigenous youth organization, council, group or grassroots initiative, or would like to see change within your community - we invite you to read the Roadmap on the Implementation of TRC Call to Action 66 that was finalized in June of 2018 by clicking here.

The Roadmap is just the beginning and we greatly appreciate all the young people that contributed to this process. Feel free to check out our interactive map that helps give a visual understanding of how many voices we heard from.

This initiative is funded by Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada and administered by the Assembly of Seven Generations.
