Why a lobby?

A:

Canadians have a proud history of adapting together to resolve challenges facing entire generations that we can’t fix alone. That’s where things like our medical and old age security systems come from, which have helped us wrestle down low-income rates for seniors from around 30% in the 1970s to around 5%-7% today -- lower than any other age group in the country. The problem is our governments show much less interest in adapting for younger Canadians than for others. We think a big part of the problem is that after decades of successful and worthwhile lobbying by groups representing retirees - and a large swath of other interests - there still is no group set up in Canada to effectively lobby for those in their forties and younger. We aim to fix that. 

“Yes, Canadian governments need to make younger people a priority. I want a Canada that works for all generations."
