Established in 1972 to unite 4-H members from across the country, 4-H Canada’s Citizenship Congress provides 4-H members with knowledge and insight about Canada, its history, and its governmental systems.

Delegates explore and develop skills related to civic engagement, governance, parliamentary procedures, citizenship, and politics, with the goal of empowering them to develop new-found skills and knowledge – and continue growing into responsible, caring and contributing members of their communities.
