Jack Layton Fellowship
FCM's Jack Layton Fellowship Program honours and celebrates Jack Layton's legacy by engaging young Canadians in politics.
Each year the program provides an opportunity for community-minded leaders to turn their good ideas into real action and real change.
The issues local governments address each day are important to all Canadians, yet young Canadians are becoming more disengaged with politics at all levels of government.
Reaching out to these young people and finding ways to engage them in contributing to the cities and communities we all want is critical.
FCM's 2016 Jack Layton Fellows developed an informative Canada 150 Toolkit — a great resource to help cities and communities across the country leverage existing resources and build their capacity to contribute to our national celebration. In this toolkit you will find information on Canada 150 projects that you or your community can get involved in; funding for Canada 150 initiatives and others resources.
