Road to Recovery


Authentic youth voices must be factored into plans for post-pandemic Canada. The #ImpactCOVID: Road to Recovery project seeks to engage youth networks across the country in the development of 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. 

The #ImpactCOVID: Road to Recovery project will be delivered by the Canadian Council for Youth Prosperity, in partnership with Opportunity for All Youth, YWCA Canada, Camara(EN)AXTRA(FR) and Vibrant Healthcare Alliance.
