Parliament Buildings in Victoria Virtual

Applications for the virtual 92nd Session of BCYP are now available! Applications close on Tuesday, November 10, 2020. Every year, 95 youth aged 16 to 21 from across the province travel to the British Columbia Parliament Buildings in Victoria for a five-day simulation of the Westminster Parliamentary System, legislating bills that govern the organization’s community service projects for the remainder of the year, hearing from a large number of speakers from around the community, and engaging in a wide variety of fun social activities. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Session will be conducted entirely virtually. Despite the change in format, we are confident that we will be able to replicate the BCYP Sessional experience as much as any other year! Visit BCYP for information on how to apply for the 92nd BCYP, as well as some information on what to expect during Session.
