OYP needs your help
In order to keep our costs reasonable, we rely on members of our host community to provide accommodations for our delegates.
Billeting For OYP 2019
FEB 15–18 2019 (3 NIGHTs)
The delegates of Ontario Youth Parliament will be meeting in Ottawa, February 15-18, 2019.
About 120 youth and adults will need a bed for the 3 nights as well as breakfast each morning.
OYP is looking for billets that are open and welcoming. Our delegates are interested in being given the opportunity to consider questions, rather than being told what the answer is, and it is vital that our host congregation is comfortable with that approach to faith. Some of our youth will have different gender expression or sexual orientation than what has been traditional, and we seek to make sure that all of our delegates feel comfortable. Having washrooms that are or can be labelled as gender neutral is a first step. We will also endeavour to billet people who identify as LGBT+ with people who are comfortable with that fact. Accessibility is also a priority, as we need to be prepared for delegates with different physical needs.
Can you help us out by providing a bed and breakfast for at least 2 of our delegates or adult supervisors? They will need to be picked up at Rideau Park United Church (2203 Alta Vista Drive) each evening around 10:30 PM and returned to the church each morning around 8:30 AM (exact times TBD). If you are unable to provide transportation, but can still provide accommodations, we can arrange transportation.
Our billets are most commonly individuals and families from our host church and community. Complete the SIGNUP FORM to provide us with your information. We will then contact you personally to talk more about billeting.
