  • News release

Ottawa, Ontario · 06/09/2022 · Library and Archives Canada

History is now; make your voice count!

You're dynamic, creative, aged 16 to 25 from across the country, and eager to contribute by providing fresh perspectives and innovative ideas to prove that old stuff from our collection is cool?

We've got the perfect thing for you: join our 2022-2023 Youth Advisory Council (YAC)!

This year is special, as members will be paid to help us transform our services to the public. Through virtual meetings held on a monthly basis, YAC members will develop tangible recommendations on our communications, programming and services, co-develop 1-2 pilot projects with our staff, and maybe more!

No need to have a background in the history, library or archival fields to apply. We're looking to create a council made up of young Canadians from diverse backgrounds and life experiences who aren't afraid to challenge the status quo.

Visit our website to learn more about the YAC, eligibility criteria and to apply. You've got until July 3, 2022 to do so.
