• Child Care

    High quality, affordable child care allows families to improve their economic conditions, strengthen community ties, and set their children up for success. The current demand for licensed child care spaces far outweighs the supply, and many young families are unable to put their children into quality child care programs. Learn about our policy recommendations on how to make child care accessible and affordable for all.

  • Employment

    Stable and meaningful employment fosters independence, encourages community contribution, improves mental health, and leads to financial stability for young people. The current job market has a disproportionate emphasis on short-term, low-paying, and unstable positions. Learn about our policy recommendations on how Canada can improve the availability of stable and secure employment for all young people.

  • Housing

    Secure housing is a key determinant of health and well-being. Unsuitable and unaffordable housing leads Canadians to feel like they don’t belong in their own communities. Learn about our policy recommendations for creating a Canada that provides affordable and accessible housing for all.

  • Healthy Living

    Healthy lifestyles lead to better job performance, stronger personal relationships, and improved mental health. Current supports are inadequate for young Canadians trying to get active, eat healthy, and develop belonging in their communities. Learn about our policy recommendations for how Canada can better encourage and support healthy lifestyles.
