"Honouring our Past, Embracing our Future"- Youth Forum

This is the tenth annual youth forum co-hosted by the Unified Aboriginal Youth Collective (UAYC) in partnership with the Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation. The UAYC forum will bring together youth leaders from each of the UAYC member organizations, Elders, and leadership from Indigenous organizations, government, and other stakeholders to provide strategic input on priority issues to youth and government, to network, develop new skills, and share knowledge and culture.

Travel and accommodation will be booked by the UAYC member organizations and paid for by the Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation. This will include a chartered bus for Vancouver Island and mainland participants, flights where necessary, hotels, and other necessary travel logistics. Shared room accommodations are mandatory as the venue is dorm style accommodations. Please ensure that your contact information on the forms is complete, and that your travel and preferences are clearly stated. We will do our best to accommodate travel request but they are booked by the most
economical way of travel. Once your registration forms have been submitted, you will be contacted to arrange a travel booking.
