The Youth Services Advisory Committee has been established by City Council to develop options and make recommendations on the delivery of youth programs and opportunities and explore the concept of a youth centre. Youth and community partners will be engaged in the development of the options and recommendations.

The next regular meeting of the Youth Services Advisory Committee is scheduled for Tuesday, September 17, 2013, 5:00 pm, McNaughton Room (3rd Floor, City Hall).  For additional information regarding this Committee please call 807-625-2212.

There are various organizations located in Thunder Bay (and the region of Northwestern Ontario) that specialize in youth-specific services.

The Thunder Bay Youth Strategy is a community initiative led by a steering committee comprised of youth, agency representatives and interested community members. The ultimate goal of the TBYS is to improve the overall quality of life for youth ages 13-24 years old. The strategy is made up of eight key areas (pillars): Employment, Education, Housing, Anti-Discrimination and Racism, Recreation, Environment, and Youth Involvement/Leadership.  ‘YOUth: A Call to Action’ is a research document containing over 50 recommendations that fit within each of the pillars. Anyone interested in being involved is welcome to participate. The United Way initiative known as 'the Thunder Bay Youth Council’ is partnered with the Thunder Bay Youth Strategy in leading each of the pillars.


The Regional Multicultural Youth Council (RMYC) is an inclusive group linking young people in small and isolated communities of Northwestern Ontario.
