Youth Advisory Committee

The Youth Advisory Committee was created in 2004 under the guidance of Mayor Lorne Mitton in an effort to get a better sense of what Moncton’s youth would like to see in Moncton, what the city is doing well and what we can improve on.

The committee is comprised of three representatives from each of the five local high schools: Bernice MacNaughton, Harrison Trimble, Moncton High, École L’Odyssée and Moncton Christian Academy.

The Mayor selects the committee members from applications solicited through advertising, notices in schools, and the media. The Mayor will select the committee members using the following criteria:

  • Committee members shall be residents of the City of Moncton; 
  • Committee members shall attend one of the five local high schools; 
  • Committee members should reflect a representative cross-section of Moncton’s youth; 
  • Youth must be prepared to volunteer their time and serve actively on the Youth Advisory Committee; 
  • Members should participate as individuals and not as representatives of any organization or special interest group. 

We are currently looking for new members.
