The United Nations Association of Canada is hosting their annual Model United Nations Conference. These conferences, are a great opportunity for residents to network, develop expertise in a professional setting and develop the soft skills needed in global affairs.
Our partnership with the United Nations Association of Canada (UNAC) has flourished and we have had recent successes coming out of last year’s Model United Nations.
Last month, the UNAC took 2 youth from The East Mall to Quito, Ecuador to take part in the Habitat III Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development. These youth who register will be introduced to new and exciting opportunities in global issues. If you know any youth/residents who would be interested in engaging with their peers from across the province on pressing issues affecting Canadians and the International community and would like to take part in the conferences please have them contact Husein Ladha at (647) 215-3558 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Service Canada staff will be onsite to speak about Canada Summer Jobs, a federal program that provides funding to help employers create summer job opportunities for students. It is designed to focus on local priorities, while helping both students and their communities.
Canada Summer Jobs:
Canada Summer Jobs provides funding to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with up to 50 employees to create summer job opportunities for young people aged 15 to 30 years who are full-time students intending to return to their studies in the next school year.
Funding has been increased this year, and the application period for Canada Summer Jobs 2016 has been extended until March 11, 2016.
Our goal is to help raise awareness and the potential for local organizations and companies eligible to submit applications to this federal program and support creating summer jobs for youth in our area if approved as a result.
We hope that you will attend and learn more about the resource that is available.
