The Students Commission of Canada


We are a charitable organization that purposely works with others to help create a world where young people are valued and heard and their ideas for improving themselves, the lives of their peers and communities are put into action.

We believe in a world where all young people positively transition into a successful adulthood

Knowledge represented as a cartoon brain is picked up and carried by a running young person. Knowledge in action.

We Turn Knowledge into Action and Action into Knowledge by:

  • Supporting others to share the story of the work they do
  • Deliberately catalyzing the knowledge generated by young people to support systems change
  • Sustaining an evidence base through the Centre of Excellence for Youth Engagement of the impact of youth voice influencing decision-making
