The Parks Canada Youth Ambassador Program

Parks Canada's Youth Ambassadors

Come experience Canada and make a difference!

Are you a young Canadian looking for adventure? Do you want to create the ultimate Canadian bucket list? Do you want to share your stories about your summer vacation, road trips or encounters and use them to inspire youth to seek out awesome experiences in their own back yard? If so, Parks Canada has the job for you!

In 2011 Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced the Parks Canada Youth Ambassador Program as Canada's official gift to commemorate the first visit to Canada by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. As Parks Canada Youth Ambassadors, two young Canadians will be hired to inspire youth to get off track and discover and share all the awesome things that they can experience in Canada.

Each year we are seeking our next two Youth Ambassadors to embark on an once-in-a-lifetime summer journey. Have fun and create incredible memories and gain valuable skills through thrilling adventures in some of Canada's most spectacular places. Your mission: find creative new ways to get Canadian youth interested in and experiencing Canada's rich and diverse natural and cultural heritage.

The adventures won't stop with the end of summer! In September, as part-time employees (approximately one day per week to the end of March), you will share your discoveries and experiences at organized events and activities to introduce and motivate your generation to discover Parks Canada.
