The OFNYPC’s mission is to engage, empower, support and advocate for First Nations Youth from the 133 First Nations communities across the province of Ontario.
In order to carry out our mission the OFNYPC is committed to enhancing communication and outreach, increasing knowledge and education, providing additional training and/or professional development opportunities, enhancing First Nations youth networks, developing tools/resources that will assist our young people and by creating new and exciting opportunities for grassroots youth engagement.
In addition, the OFNYPC will continue to focus on the development of policies, presentations, resolutions and strategies aimed at addressing collective regional First Nations youth priorities. We will continue to explore new opportunities for partnership development and will continue to meet with key stakeholders that share a mutual interest in creating positive change for Ontario First Nations Youth. The OFNYPC will remain actively engaged in a variety of technical tables, committees and in various leadership forums to ensure youth voice is considered and incorporated into the development of regional-based approaches. And, perhaps most importantly we will also continue to reiterate and reaffirm the critical importance of including grassroots youth in community discussions and decision-making processes. Our Youth are leaders in each of our respective communities and Nations, relying upon the guidance and mentorship of those who came before us
