impact covid recovery project
an evidenced-based recovery plan
Youth voices must be factored into plans for post-pandemic Canada. The Impact Covid Recovery Project has engaged youth networks across the country to develop a national, youth-informed pandemic recovery plan.
The plan will focus on youth workforce development as a critical vehicle for economic recovery and offer a toolkit to support authentic, appropriate and culturally safe youth engagement in post-pandemic economic recovery efforts.
This project is generously supported by the Co-operators Community Fund, RBC Future Launch and Magnet. The project is delivered by AXTRA, Camara, Opportunity for All Youth, Youth Climate Lab, Vibrant Healthcare Alliance, YWCA Canada and the Canadian Council for Youth Prosperity.
