Young Leaders Wanted: A Week at Parliament Hill

Opportunity for High School Children of CBTU Affiliate Members – Forum for Young Canadians

As part of an ongoing commitment to member service and value, the Canadian Building Trades Union (CBTU) have negotiated a sponsorship for three (3) CBTU family members’ children to take part in an important initiative for High School students as part of the Forum for Young Canadians (FYC) program.

The CBTU will provide up to $2,000 per selected student which includes travel to Ottawa and the registration fee for the program. Details can be found on how to apply as well as more information about the program by clicking here.

Along with the Application Form, the student must write a short letter indicating why they are motivated to participate in the Forum for Young Canadians and a short resume outlining their community involvement. In many provinces community involvement is now mandatory for high school credit.

Please indicate in the letter that you are a CBTU family member!

If you have a high school age child or relative (15-19 years old) please have them complete the application form along with the short letter and resume and forward it to Julie Lanois at the CBTU, jlanois@buildingtrades.ca by January 13, 2017. The CBTU will then select candidate’s to fill the three (3) CBTU family spots at the forum this winter.

The selected students will have to get their teacher/principal to sign the permission form to miss class.

As this is time sensitive please share with any IBEW or Building Trades members you know! For young people this is a chance to come to Ottawa and see how government works, it is a worthwhile opportunity that sometimes our member’s children don’t always get!
