In addition to Winter Session, members of YPM also have the unique and extraordinary opportunity to participate in the biennial Western Canada Youth Parliament a joint session with all four YPs in Western Canada:
- Youth Parliament of Manitoba,
- Saskatchewan Youth Parliament,
- TUXIS Parliament of Alberta, and
- British Columbia Youth Parliament.
Youth Parliament of Manitoba designed the logo below when it hosted the 14th Western Canada Youth Parliament. The logo symbolizes the four western provinces that come together every two years for WCYP. It was recommended for adoption for future WCYP sessions in a resolution passed by participants of the 14th WCYP. A vector version of the logo can be downloaded here.
In 1981, YPM (then known as Youth Parliament of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario) organized the first WCYP as a project to commemorate our 60th anniversary. This marked the first occasion where representatives from all four YPs in Western Canada attended (although BCYP did not officially endorse its participation).
The first WCYP in which all four YPs officially participated was at the Alberta Legislature in 1983.
