About Us

The Canadian Council for Youth Prosperity (CCYP) is a national, cross-sector collaboration that drives coordination and boosts the infrastructure that supports the youth workforce development ecosystem. The Canadian Council of Youth Prosperity acknowledges that youth workforce development is a complex, interconnected system of services and supports. It also recognizes the need for coordination and infrastructure in order for workforce development to strengthen and evolve.

In recognition of this need, the Canadian Council for Youth Prosperity recently received a five-year, $6 million funding commitment from the Government of Canada's Youth Employment Skills Strategy to expand our work across Canada.
