About UNA-Canada Service Corps

UNA-Canada Service Corps is a youth-focused programme that provides inaugural opportunities for young Canadians to meaningfully participate in United Nations events. It aims to encourage young Canadians to get involved in meaningful service opportunities while practicing leadership, developing skills and gaining essential life and work experience.

On their Service journey, delegates gain valuable employment skills and experience, deepen their understanding of diplomacy and encourage global citizenship. These skills and values are then incorporated into their Service initiatives, subsequently strengthening their communities, and by extension, Canada.

The Value of International Experience


International experience for youth is an important component of building an effective culture of Service in Canada.


In February 2018, the Government of Canada started a dialogue with youth with the goal of building Canada’s first Youth Policy. Through these consultations, youth expressed that international experiences are important for their personal development.


Not only did youth express that international opportunities are a way to provide them with more informed, holistic perspectives of the world, which can lead to increased empathy, inclusiveness and flexibility, but also a way to instill a greater appreciation for their own Canadian identities. Additionally, delegates shared that international experiences provide many transferable skills needed to succeed in future employment and conveyed that they would like more accessible international opportunities.

"Representing UNA-Canada and Canada Service Corps at COP24 has been a life changing experience. I am so moved by the passion, sense of urgency, but above all else commitment to unity. As an Indigenous youth I feel a deep connection to the land and everyone I’ve encountered with at this conference not only appreciates Indigenous peoples connection but embrace it. Most of all, I understand that this is the first step. The experience and knowledge I’ve gained will be a lifelong service to my communities."   
- David Garrow, Delegate at COP 24
