Hon. Mary Ng
Member of Parliament for Markham—Thornhill
CYC 2021-2022

Young people are not only the leaders of tomorrow but also, the leaders of today. That is why the Prime Minister and our government have prioritized creating more opportunities to empower youth in communities across Canada. Youth councils offer the chance for young leaders to have their voice heard and see their impact reflected in all levels of government - which is was so important to me to start one when I was elected as MP for Markham-Thornhill in 2017. Each year, a new council is formed, new goals are made, and incredible events, discussions, and fun follows.

COVID-19 has changed the way my youth council functions, but it certainly has not hindered these young leaders' passion, accomplishments, and dedication to Markham-Thornhill. 

June 2022

The Markham-Thornhill youth council hosted a park cleanup day at the Milne Dam Conservation Park! It's important to do our part to keep our environment clean, so our green space can be enjoyed by the whole community!


May 2022

The Markham-Thornhill youth council hosted a university student panel where participants were able to ask university students important questions about making their post secondary decisions!




April 2022

The Markham-Thornhill Constituency Youth Council met in person for the first time in two years! They led a mental health workshop on goal setting and stress-managing techniques!


February 2022

Our Constituency Youth Council hosted a Mental Health Forum with Hon. Carolyn Bennett along with the Markham-Thornhill, Richmond, and Burnaby North—Seymour youth councils. It is so important we keep an open dialogue about mental health with young leaders.


January 2022

Our CYC collaborated with the City of Markham Holiday Drive and collected over 50 items!
