This annual event provides a unique opportunity for a select group of young Canadians to come together and gain a better understanding of our country.

Through meetings with political leaders, senior officials and others, they learn a great deal about the workings of our democratic institutions.
Through meeting one another and having discussions among themselves, they learn to appreciate the diversity of Canada and the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship.
A consistently positive response to this program is the value attached to the opportunity to meet their peers from across Canada.
The discovery that Canadians hold much more in common than the matters that divide us.

We usually send one high school student from Banting Secondary School to the program every year.
