Youth aged 18 - 30 are an important segment of Toronto's population. In some parts of the city, they are the fastest-growing demographic group, and they are often drivers of economic and employment growth. Yet the voices of youth are often missing in Toronto's planning processes, where homeowners over the age of 55 typically dominate the conversation. The Youth Engagement Strategy aims to bring more youth voices into city planning conversations by:
> Understanding how and when to engage youth on city planning issues; and,
> Creating a framework that will mobilize a generation to take ownership of and become active on planning issues.
