First Work Members have indicated an interest in bringing members together to advocate on behalf of the organization and the sector, with the Ontario government, Members of Provincial Parliament and other government officials at Queen’s Park. As we undergo this transformation, the importance of a unified voice is critical to ensure that sector’s service needs are met.
Key Objectives of Queen’s Park Day:
1. Highlight the work of First Work’s Membership on the Youth Employment Workforce in Ontario;
2. Engage and build relationships with Government;
3. Provide an opportunity for First Work members to interact individually with government; and,
4. Communicate the needs of the sector and the most vulnerable youth we serve
The Queen’s Park Day will include a reception in the morning and meetings in the afternoon with Members of Provincial Parliament and Government Officials.
