Poll questions are designed to get your perspectives on issues and decisions that affect you and other young people.

We’ll share the results with U-Reporters and display them here. Watch for the results to see what other young people across the country are thinking. UNICEF Canada and our partners will make sure your views are heard and influence how people are making decisions in government, schools, health care and other places.

    YOUTH INCLUSION IN POLITICS

    In Canada, young people represent a large constituency of citizens who don’t vote and who are rarely heard, but who are directly impacted by public policy. Leading into an election year, we asked young people to tell us how they felt included in political discourse. Here's what they had to say…  

    These results will be used to elevate youth voice and priorities in our advocacy work with decision-makers. Young people have the right to be listened to, help governments solve these challenges and be given priority among other interests, by all political parties and by voters, during and after the federal election.
