We bring together youth from across the province to build friendships, debate current issues, and explore their spirituality.
With legislation focused on youth issues debate at Ontario Youth Parliament is provoking, impassioned, and deeply supportive. Add spiritual reflection, two wild dances, and over a hundred awesome youth — and you've got a weekend that's unlike anything you've ever experienced.
Run almost entirely by youth with the support of adult mentors OYP has a rich legacy of action, leadership, and community. Each year, the event is organized by a newly selected Cabinet that strives to create the best experience possible. OYP is continually changing and growing while maintaining ties to hundreds of alumni across Canada.
OYP 50th Anniversary Celebration
It's a celebration 50 years in the making.
On November 16th, we're inviting all alumni to join us as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ontario Youth Parliament. Relive your days as a parliamentarian with a one day mini sitting of the house. Then, reconnect with old friends and dance the night away at our formal banquet.
Whether you attended for one year or have been around for decades, each delegate has helped shape OYP into a vibrant and life changing organization. We hope you'll join us as we celebrate the past 50 years, and look forward to the next 50.
