Indigenous Youth Voices is a national network that has been developed to maximize advocacy of Indigenous youth priorities on the terms and standards that Indigenous youth set for ourselves. Our focus is not on drawing attention to any one particular youth issue, but on connecting existing visions and amplifying the perspectives and priorities that they represent.
In order to establish this national network and advocacy body for Indigenous youth, we must consult with our peers to ensure that their ideas are at the forefront. The responses to this survey will help inform this process and create authentic solutions for supporting youth initiatives in the future.
We encourage you to answer as many questions as you feel comfortable with. The more elaborate your answers, the better they will guide our process moving forward.
** Please note that although responses can be anonymous, we will be using the demographic information, as well as details about nation and community, as we write our findings report for the Ministry of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada.
If you wish to stay connected or get involved with Indigenous Youth Voices, please include your contact information at the end of the survey.
We acknowledge that there are multiple languages spoken across our Indigenous communities, however, due to an urgent timeline we are currently only able to offer our communications in English. Please feel free to submit your survey responses in whichever language you prefer.
