Teens from across Ontario gathering every year in a model parliament. More style than Queen's Park since 1921.
Ontario Youth Parliament is a lot of things to a lot of people. For some, it's where they met their best friends. For others, it was why they became interested in politics, or the first time they felt they could truly be themselves. We exist because we make a difference in people's lives. The alumni and youth leaders that currently make OYP happen were once nervous 14-year-old backbenchers wondering what they'd gotten themselves into. Their involvement in OYP helped shape them into who they are—and so they work to make that opportunity possible for youth today.
