As well, 1 member is elected to serve as Youth Representatives on the Board of Directors of the RED Board, M-RON Inc. This seat ensures that the concerns and issues of youth are voiced through the proper channels.

Along with the 13 members, a Youth Coordinator representing M-RON Inc. works closely with the council in developing and supporting youth initiatives. A Resource Support Specialist, also representing M-RON Inc., and a representative from FINALY! sits on the council for continued guidance and support.

Membership is open to any youth between the ages of 15 - 30 years. 

From the 13 elected members, an executive is chosen. The positions are as follows:

  • Chairperson

  • Vice Chairperson

  • Secretary 

  • Treasurer        

The Chairperson from the previous year occupies the seat for the following term as Past Chairperson. The aim is to maintain continuity from year to year. As well, at the council meeting immediately prior to the AGM, the current council can select, by democratic vote, a maximum of 4 members to continue on for the following term.
