Priority-Setting Summit Project

**Please Complete the Registration Survey on the following page.

We are very excited to announce that the second edition of the Priority-Setting Summit Project (PSSP) will be happening in person in Montréal on November 13-14, 2021!

The primary goal of this project is to mobilize and increase civic engagement among Québec’s English-speaking youth while providing them with the tools necessary to develop strong leadership skills for the future.

During the Summit, the participants will be divided into teams to work on the elaboration of Strategic Plans based on the key issues identified by the Youth Advisory Committee. This will help build the ultimate goal of PSSP, which is to develop a 5-year Strategic Plan to positively impact outcomes for English-speaking youth.

The schedule will be packed with learning opportunities via educational workshops, appearances of special guest speakers, youth leadership training, mentorship, and networking activities.

The spots are limited, so don’t wait too long to register if you want to have the opportunity to participate!
