November 6, 2016 - November 10, 2016
An annual core programme of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA), the Commonwealth Youth Parliament rotates alphabetically through the Regions of the Commonwealth. The 8th Commonwealth Youth Parliament (CYP8) will take place in British Columbia, Canada from 6 to 10 November 2016.
It is expected that a maximum of 66 young people from around the Commonwealth will participate. It is an opportunity for young people from the Commonwealth to experience aspects of parliamentary democracy and provides a platform for them to establish links with like-minded peers. they will also experience a ‘real-life’ working parliament or legislature. Formal parliamentary practice adapted from several Commonwealth countries will be followed and the proceedings will be observed under the watchful eyes of experienced parliamentary officials.
