Welcome to the Youth Parliament of Manitoba (YPM). We are one of the longest-running model parliament organizations in the world, having held sessions continuously since 1922.

Our premier event is Winter Session, which takes place each December in the Manitoba Legislative Building. All youth in Manitoba are invited to sit in the chamber, where they can voice their opinion on issues that are important to them. As a member, you will have the chance to learn about current political issues and make lifelong friends from across the province.

Throughout our history, we have seen some of the most influential people in the province — and the country — pass through our ranks. Community leaders like Lloyd AxworthyBill Blaikie, Brian Bowman, Howard Pawley, and Darren Praznik were all members of YPM.

All Manitoban youth who are between the ages of 16-20 are eligible to attend Winter Session. Applicants do not necessarily have to be residents of Manitoba, so long as they are able to physically attend Winter Session from December 26-31. Please contact us if you have any questions.
