Who We Are
The Canadian Coalition for YPS (CCYPS) is a network of individuals and organizations working or interested in Youth, Peace and Security with the primary purpose of uplifting each others’ work, advocacy and research. The CCYPS platform fosters a collaborative space for Canadian young people and allies to share and exchange resources and opportunities to better engage in the United Nations’ Youth, Peace and Security Agenda locally, nationally and globally.
What We Do
We are a youth-led Coalition focused on elevating advocacy, work & research on Youth, Peace and Security at home and abroad.
In Canada, young people often don't see themselves as peacebuilders. We want to change that! We want to bring the Youth, Peace & Security agenda home by engaging in domestic issues of peace, security & social justice.
