Youth Spaces

Youth are playing a game

There are many dedicated youth spaces within the municipality. These spaces center youth in the design and operations of the space. There are two types of youth spaces: youth centres and youth rooms!

Youth rooms are within Municipal Recreation Centres and offer programming and drop-in time for youth to participate in.

Youth Centres are spaces for youth to hangout with friends while also having access to other support and services.

Check out the information below!
