The 2021–22 NYAC is a diverse group of 125 youth ages 13 to 21. We're grateful to have individuals from every province and territory share their unique perspectives with the RCMP!
This year, committee members are sharing their thoughts on topics such as:
- Bullying and cyberbullying
- Online safety
- Transportation safety and impaired driving
- Cannabis and substance use
- Mental health
- Healthy relationships and sexual consent
- Gender and sexual diversity
NYAC members are helping the RCMP better understand, support and connect with youth by talking about the ways they want to be engaged. They're getting tools for community engagement, hearing about volunteer opportunities, and talking with experts and RCMP members.
The RCMP National Youth Advisory Committee (NYAC) helps shape how the RCMP supports young persons. It brings together up to 125 youth between the ages of 13 and 21 from all over Canada to discuss important issues that they face in their respective communities. The NYAC provides valuable input to RCMP policies, programs and strategies.
How it works
The NYAC is composed of young Canadian residents (ages 13 to 21) from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. Members meet on a moderated, private online forum to discuss youth trends, RCMP programs, as well as youth crime and victimization issues.
This commitment requires approximately two to four online hours per month, from October to June.
