Strategies & Actions

Our Youth

We want to hear from you!

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.

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?
