In 2021, U-Report Canada recruited more than 400 new U-Reporters from across Canada, reaching 1,173 total U-Reporters. Also joining the U-Report Canada team are 26 new Youth Ambassadors who help with U-Report content and poll development, plus recruitment. U-Report Canada actively recruits Ambassadors and U-Reporters from various communities and backgrounds, ensuring a diversity of opinions and perspectives.
With the help of our Ambassadors, U-Reporters, our Steering Committee and the implementation of bi-weekly polling, U-Report Canada has advocated for youth in Canada at multiple forums. U-Report Canada results have appeared in news articles on the topic of mental health and education and UNICEF Canada’s policy brief on Bill C-11 (Consumer Privacy Protection Act). U-Report Canada results continue to be featured at a wide-range of events, including the Youth Activism Summit and YMCA’s youth employment panel.
As U-Report Canada continues its mission of amplifying youth voices, it also offers young people the chance to build important advocacy skills, network with community leaders and decision-makers, and other exciting opportunities. With more to come in 2022, U-Report Canada would like to thank everyone who has helped make this program a success, as it would not be possible without your support.
