Welcome to British Columbia Youth Parliament!

        This grant was initiated in 2014 through the generosity of the Association of Former MLAs of British Columbia (The Association) to honour the memory of the late Hugh Austin Curtis for his outstanding contributions to the people of British Columbia at the municipal and provincial levels of government and for his service to community organizations and his diligent work on behalf of The Association.

        Through the Victoria Foundation, this grant provides additional opportunities for wider participation in the British Columbia Youth Parliament’s annual Session in Victoria, by helping to defray travel and accommodation expenses for two youth who live outside the Greater Victoria area.

        The Committee on Elections selects the recipients who fulfill the above criteria from members seeking financial assistance and their names are published annually to The Association’s newsletter, Orders of the Day, BCYP’s webpage, and the British Columbia Youth Parliament Sessional Journal.
