Jack Layton Fellowship
FCM's Jack Layton Fellowship Program honours and celebrates Jack Layton's legacy by engaging young Canadians in politics.
Each year the program provides an opportunity for community-minded leaders to turn their good ideas into real action and real change.
The issues local governments address each day are important to all Canadians, yet young Canadians are becoming more disengaged with politics at all levels of government.
Reaching out to these young people and finding ways to engage them in contributing to the cities and communities we all want is critical.
