IHDCYH youth advisory council

The Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health (IHDCYH)’s youth advisory council is a group of diverse young Canadians who are passionate about health and health research. The council brings the youth voice directly into conversations about priority development, policies and issues that impact Canadian communities from coast to coast to coast.

Youth council members meet online to share thoughts and ideas with each other and IHDCYH, and discuss health related topics that are important to them and their communities.

Council members represent regions across Canada and reflect diverse backgrounds and life experiences.
