Foster amongst the youth of Manitoba an understanding of, an interest in, and an engagement with the Canadian democratic parliamentary process and, in so doing, to encourage the growth of the individual and their abilities.

Manitoba youth who at least once per year spend 5 days engaging in intense, stimulating & enlightening debate. We are non-profit, non-partisan, non-denominational and have been run by youth, for youth since 1922.


History

In 1922, George Stewart, Lieutenant Governor of the Older Boys’ TUXIS Parliament of Manitoba, opened the first of a long line of annual sessions devoted to the development of leadership and awareness of the parliamentary system among the young men (and later, women) of Manitoba. It has since become one of the oldest Youth Parliaments (YPs) in a network of similar organizations stretching across the country and the world.
