The City Youth Council of Toronto is and exciting and diverse group of youth from across the city! The Youth Council isunique in that it focuses on elected geographical representation within each ward and as such, the Youth councillors can get to know their own ward's needs, as well as the challenges of working together despite their differences.

Everyone has a voice, but usually as youth, our voice has been too many times overlooked. With the CYCTO, the youth voice will finally be accounted for and our ideas finally be put into action!

The City Youth Council of Toronto is a great way to get involved not only with municipal politics, but also get involved in the city that you live in. It has given me the opportunity to hear from constituents of my ward and to advocate for change that benefits us all.
