WHAT IS THE BCFYP?

The BC Francophone Youth Parliament is a parliamentary simulation which brings together 115 youth from all four corners of the province, between the ages of 14 to 25, to the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia. Over the course of three days, participants are immersed within the Canadian democratic process.

While the Members of Parliament and the Ministers debate social issues which directly impact the lives of Francophone youth in BC, a team of journalists listen attentively to the parliamentary discussions in order to report them to the population via the press and radio. The citizens community participants are discussing about citizens and community engagement to empower the youth to have a critical mind and to make wise choices.

Ultimately, all participants have the same objective: participating within the democratic process of British Columbia.
