A GROWING ORGANIZATION
Dynamic and always moving, the Young Liberals of Canada (Quebec) ( YLC (Q) ) draw their strength from the long liberal tradition of renewal of ideas through youth. The organization is a standing committee within the Quebec wing of the Liberal Party of Canada and includes members 14 to 25 years old. The YLC (Q ) consist of young people from diverse backgrounds and varied interests that share the same goals of equality of opportunity for all in a Canadian society that welcomes the diversity of its components.
The Quebec wing of the Young Liberals of Canada ‘s main mission is to influence the policies of the Liberal Party of Canada to reflect the interests and opinions of young Quebecers in all decisions of the Canadian government. They hold the third of the votes in the party and intend to use this valuable influence to its maximum. Moreover, respect for the environment, the decriminalization of marijuana and marriages between same-sex couples are all issues that the Young Liberals have made a significant and constructive contribution.
ROLE ASSURED BY THE CONSTITUTION OF THE LIBERAL PARTY OF CANADA
Young Liberals of Canada holds a third (33 %) of the votes at the Convention of the Liberal Party of Canada. At a national conference, nearly 900 delegates are chosen throughout Quebec, including 300 from our organization. Add the many post -secondary institutions student clubs in Quebec who may also elect more delegates at conventions and general assemblies of the LCP.
The Young Liberals of Canada ( Quebec ) ensure to be as representative as possible of Quebec society . Although it is part of a larger ensemble – the Liberal Party of Canada – the organization takes into account first of all the views of young Quebecers. This choice led to defend positions at odds with those of the Party on occasions and allowed them to influence the Canadian government repeatedly.
