Young Canadians will have the opportunity to take part in Ottawa 2017 celebrations thanks to a partnership with Encounters with Canada.
Each year, more than 3,200 young people from across Canada cross the organization’s doorstep to live a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the nation’s capital.
Encounters with Canada participants visiting Ottawa in 2017 will have the opportunity to represent Ottawa as Youth Ambassadors. The students, aged 14 to 17 years, will participate in Ottawa 2017 events, help with marketing and media activities, including social media outreach, and join the Ottawa 2017 volunteer program for certain events. Upon their return home, they will then serve as special representatives of Ottawa, making presentations in their communities about their Ottawa 2017 experience.
These dynamic participants will mark history, becoming ambassadors for Canadian youth and representing their provinces, territories and their communities during Canada’s 150th celebrations!
