We need people who think outside the box, who are forward-looking and progressive.
— Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development
Inventing the future is in the hands of our young leaders. National dialogue is the pulse of Canada’s social and economic health.
Studio Y helped kick off this dialogue at the inaugural National Youth Leadership and Innovation Strategy Summit. Held in April 2016, at the MaRS Centre, young leaders from across the country came together with organizations committed to improving outcomes for youth and government.
Foundations were laid for a national strategy on youth leadership and innovation. Young leaders shared their ideas about the future of Canada’s economy with federal and provincial ministers and premiers. Their ability to take on challenges is key to the country’s progression.
