Panel 1

Home

Every year in December, YPM hosts its Winter Session at 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. Participants will have the chance to learn about current affairs and make lifelong friends from across the province.

Some of the most influential people in our province – and country – are alumni of YPM. From prominent politicians to Rhodes Scholars, community leaders like Lloyd AxworthyBill Blaikie, Niki Ashton, and Michael Redhead Champagne were all members of YPM in their youth!
