Ottawa, August 20, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)
OTTAWA, ON: Town of Oakville Councillor, Jasvinder Sandhu, has been selected as a member of the Youth Engagement Advisory Council at the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) Annual Conference this year.

AMO represents the interests of municipalities on policy and program matters that fall within provincial jurisdiction. The Youth Engagement Advisory Council is comprised of only six young elected municipal officials representing different areas of Ontario.

The goals of this council are to increase the participation of youth in municipal government in Ontario through measures that reflect the regional, cultural, social and gender diversity of the province.

“It is an honour and privilege to be selected to represent the interests of our younger
population. I look forward to this important work and participating in discussions to further
engage our youth and help cultivate future leaders in Oakville and Ontario as a whole,” says Jasvinder Sandhu, Oakville Town Councillor for Ward 7.

Furthering youth engagement, Sandhu started a volunteer internship initiative with her office earlier this year. The first successful cohort wrapped up just last month and the positions ended up being paid honorariums.

“I am really looking forward to the next cohort beginning in the coming days and continuing to see the level of inquisitiveness and commitment from these high school students,” says Sandhu.

When speaking about what she looks forward to as a member of this council, Sandhu states, “the icing on the cake really is the ability to take my little idea and now share it at the provincial level with my new colleagues to see how we can engage youth all over the Province.”
