Political Engagement of Indigenous Youth in Québec

Author/contributor
Title
Political Engagement of Indigenous Youth in Québec
Abstract
According to the 2016 census, 1.2% of Québec’s population is indigenous (Page 2017) and 27.3% of that population is between 15 and 34, or the youth (Statistics Canada 2017). So far, Québec has had two indigenous members of government and there are none occupying official chairs nowadays (National Assembly of Québec). There is an issue of underrepresentation that affects the present and future of indigenous youth.
