Building a system that puts the skills of young people in Canada to work.


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. 

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.

The Canadian Council for Youth Prosperity has brought together a highly-skilled table of Canadian community and corporate leaders, who provide a balanced, evidence-based voice.  The Council for Youth Prosperity has been meeting and functioning as an arms’ length initiative since June 2018. 


In September 2019, the Council for Youth Prosperity became a pan-Canadian expert coalition formed of representatives from all Provinces, Territories and Indigenous organizations.  The Canadian Council for Youth Prosperity is powered by leaders from these organizations:


Why focus on youth workforce development?

Youth are critical to Canada's economy. We need to facilitate youth integrating into the labour market to enable companies to benefit from a productive and motivated youth workforce.  Through work and inclusive environments, young people can grow, innovate, and prosper.
