Forum is about one week that may very well change the rest of your life. It’s about giving smart, engaged and opinionated young leaders a chance to recreate parliament for a week. It’s about getting inside—deep inside—Canadian politics and public affairs and seeing what running the country looks like up close. It’s about learning how to collaborate and share ideas, then turn them into real community action.
Beyond the history books, beyond the news channel and beyond classroom debates, there’s a lot to discuss. Your voice can make an impact now. If you have ideas. If you think and read and talk about what’s going on in the world. If you have something to say—say it at Forum. Be a Voice.
Apply now! www.forum.ca

Remembering Tony German
The Foundation recognizes with sadness the passing of Tony German. His vision in helping to establish the Forum for Young Canadians program has brought thousands of Canadian students the opportunity to understand and appreciate the democratic institutions of our Parliamentary system. His dedication to ensuring young Canadians were able to celebrate their contributions to our country has established a legacy for our organization of which we are truly proud. We offer our sympathies to his remarkable wife Sage and their family.
