Citizenship Congress

Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, 4-H Canada has made the difficult decision to postpone Citizenship Congress until further notice. 4-H Canada’s priority continues to be the health, safety and security of our youth members, volunteer leaders, families, and the communities 4-H impacts, while we continue to adjust to the current situation. For more information, please see our latest update on the outbreak.

May 5 to 10, 2020
Ottawa, Ontario

Open to 4-H members ages 16 to 21. Contact your provincial office regarding selection to attend.

The 4-H Canada Citizenship Congress will deepen your understanding of governance and public policy, nurture your communication skills, and expand your horizons as you discover some of what it means to be Canadian in the nation’s capital.

Workshops will culminate with an annual debate. Here you and your fellow 4-H members will construct insightful arguments, and practise your skills of persuasion and public speaking. Ultimately you’ll learn more about Canada, its government and yourself.

The annual Citizenship Congress takes place at the Terry Fox Canadian Youth Centre in Ottawa, Ontario.
