The Ottawa Youth Engagement Committee (OYEC) consists of youth working in partnership with the City of Ottawa to encourage youth engagement and amplify youth voice and representation at the City of Ottawa. We strive to engage underrepresented and underprivileged communities of youth in Ottawa, in action and through representation. OYEC was originally born of the Mayor’s Youth Summit in 2012.

As of 2017, OYEC is a group of 20 youth between the ages of 15 and 24 who are passionate and committed to making Ottawa a better, safer, more equal place for all youth. Youth make a one year commitment to being part of the committee, attending monthly meetings and working outside of meetings to achieve our goals.
