Conseil jeunesse de Montréal

The Conseil jeunesse de Montréal is made up of 15 members, representative of the geographic, linguistic, cultural and social diversity of Montreal's youth, and fair representation is ensured between men and women.

Its members are selected and appointed by the City Council to advise the Mayor and the Executive Committee in a regular and ongoing manner on all issues relating to youths and to ensure that youth concerns are taken into consideration in the decisions made by Municipal Administration.

The Conseil jeunesse de Montréal is taking persistent action to connect with young people, seek their views on issues that matter to them, ensure representation to elected officials, and submit to them various recommendations to improve living conditions and citizenship initiatives taken by Montréal’s youths.

Since its creation in 2003, the Conseil jeunesse de Montréal has organized a number of valuable municipal consultations. It was behind the creation of Journée des jeunes Montréalais and has provided accompaniment for major innovative projects including the self-serve bicycle (Bixi) program, the Programme de parrainage professionnel, the Concours Biblioclip, the Complexe sportif Le Taz, - to name just a few – and has published several policy papers concerning different issues e.g. on cultural participation of Montreal youth, improving communication between the City of Montreal and young Montrealers, succession in the municipal public service, the sense of safety, and graffiti.

Its members have represented the City of Montreal during the Shanghai World Expo in 2008 and at the annual Hiroshima International Youth Conference for Peace in the Future in 2011.
