The launch will include acknowledgement of financial support received from the Government of Canada and the Ontario Trillium Foundation, and opening remarks will be provided by MP Maryam Monsef and MPP Jeff Leal. It will also share information about two new exciting opportunities for local youth to develop new skills and ways of working together. The funding recipients, Seeds for Justice and TRACKS Youth programs, work to engage Indigenous, newcomer, and settler youth in leadership training and dynamic education on social and environmental issues, through different ways of knowing and using a peer-mentorship model.
