The Local Branch Activation took place from November 2018 to March 2019, which set the foundations of the Local Youth Network Branches. Four communities across Canada (Vancouver, Sherbrooke, Toronto and Fredericton) participated in this initiative, each consulting newcomer youth on what they want the journey to Canada to look like, and sharing these remits with their community and organizations.
