February 12 2016

Magalie Malette, a grade 10 student at École secondaire Macdonald-Cartier, will attend the Forum for Young Canadians to be held from February 15th to 19th in Ottawa.

Active in her school and keenly interested in politics, Magalie is a member of the theatre group Les Draveurs and of the specialized science, math and technology program La 4e dimension. Magalie is always looking for new challenges and the Forum for Young Canadians is for her an opportunity to make a difference, to collaborate with others and transform her ideas into community action.

At the Forum, Magalie will have the opportunity to delve into public affairs and Canadian politics and to see up close how a country is governed. Behind the scenes in the world of federal politics, Magalie will have the pleasure of meeting members of Parliament, senators and other important figures of government and the public service.
The Forum for Young Canadians aims to provide youth aged 15 to 19 who are engaged and passionate about politics with the opportunity to understand political issues and to have an unforgettable experience on Parliament Hill.

Beyond the history books and the classroom debates, the Forum allows participants to take their place and make a difference.
