Less than half of eligible young voters cast a ballot in the last federal election. According to the most recent surveys, voter turnout among Canadian youth is considerably low due to a lack of motivation and interest in politics. This event will create a political discussion among students, encouraging them to take part in politics. As Seneca College is one of the most culturally diverse campuses in Canada, the wall will feature a wide range of political views. Creators of the event hope to inspire youth across the country to become more active in the political process.

Students taking part in the event will be available on-site for interviews. To request an interview with a My Vote, My Voice creator or other students please contact one of the following:
