Student Attends Indigenous Youth Forum

November 06, 2017

Grade 12 student, Lauryn Edwards from Ecole Secondaire Cochrane High recently represented her community of Taykwa Tagamou Nation as a delegate to a Youth Forum for the Nishnawbe Aski Nation (November 1-4, 2017 in Ottawa). Through this forum, Lauryn was able to express the issues that she felt were important to her as an Indigenous youth and be a part of discussions that centred on solutions.  She had a chance to meet Cindy Blackstock, Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus, Justice Murray Sinclair and of course, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.  What an amazing experience for Lauryn!
