The BTYC is comprised of 13 democratically elected members that serve youth, ages 15 - 30 years, living along the Baccalieu Trail. 

The BTYC is affiliated with the provincial organization, FINALY!. FINALY!, other than facilitating the participation of youth in decision making, promotes the achievements of youth and entrepreneurs, and distributes information to youth in all areas of the province. In conjunction with RED Boards and local partners, FINALY! works to establish and maintain zonal youth councils which are networked with other youth councils in their region and around the province. The BTYC is part of this network and is a subcommittee of the RED Board, M-RON Inc.

As a subcommittee, the BTYC works with M-RON Inc. in supporting and developing youth initiatives. A Youth Representative sits on the Board of Directors of M-RON Inc. and ensures that youth issues and concerns are voiced through the proper channels.

The council also seeks to empower youth to be active participants in decision making and implementation. The involvement of the council in social and economic development provides an opportunity for youth to build a future in our province. The efforts of the BTYC focus on the following objectives:

  • To act as a liaison between M-RON Inc. and the youth of Economic Zone 17, or the Baccalieu Trail, strengthening the partnership created by M-RON Inc. and its addition of a Youth Seat.
