June is National Indigenous History Month, a time to honour the history, heritage and diversity of Indigenous peoples in Canada. This year, to recognize the strength of present-day Indigenous communities and their youth, we are pleased to host the 2021 Youth Indigenize the Senate Virtual Round Table.
This event is part of Youth Indigenize the Senate, an initiative that brings together Indigenous youth and senators from across Canada to ensure young Indigenous voices are heard and represented in the Senate.
Youths bring unique insight into what is happening in their communities and offer a fresh perspective on what needs be done to make life better in their community. This year, they are invited to share stories and experiences of the pandemic with senators in small group discussions held virtually on Monday, June 28, 2021, at 1 p.m. ET.
Do you know a First Nations, Métis or Inuit youth who is making a difference in their community? Nominate one incredible Indigenous youth(18 – 35 years old) in your community to share their story!
Complete this nomination form before Friday, May 14, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. PT.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at SENgage@sen.parl.gc.ca
All the best,
Abigail Chan SEN-55
Senate of Canada
