City of Hamilton Youth Strategy

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Young people play a crucial role in city building. As a City, it is our role to capture the voices of youth to keep Hamilton moving forward with fresh ideas, and new perspectives. While young people bring many benefits, they are at a time in their lives where they experience many barriers and challenges. It is our role to create a positive and supportive community which benefits us all.

The City of Hamilton is working on creating a Youth Strategy. The Youth Strategy will report back to Council on recommendations for enhancing youth engagement at the City. It will also identify the top five youth priorities for the City of Hamilton.

Have your voice heard and tell us what Hamilton is doing well for youth, not so well for youth, and your ideas to make the City of Hamilton more youth friendly?


We want to hear from you!

Youth age 14 to 29, parents of youth, and community partners supporting youth are invited to participate in our online survey and our focus groups.

This work is being done in partnership with our HamOntYouth Steering Committee. Youth have been involved in survey design, will help to analyze, and will interpret the data before presenting it back to Council for endorsement.

This work brings youth voices into decision making and planning across the city. As part of the engagement we are also engaging community partners and parents of youth to understand what they may be struggling with and how we could help. This work also helps us to align our local youth work to our provincial and federal government partners.
