CUPE held its first ever national youth council during the 2011 National Convention in Vancouver. Children of delegates aged 9-14 were given an opportunity to witness first-hand the process of decision-making in Canada’s largest union, learn about issues facing workers, and make links with issues facing young people at school and in the community.

As part of the program, the youth council participants produced a video detailing their experiences which was presented to all delegates on the last day of convention.
