EF CANADIAN YOUTH AMBASSADOR


Here are the 2019 winners

Alessia Giammaria
British Columbia

Alessia Giammaria

An AED is an Automated External Defibrillator that delivers an electric shock through the chest to the heart. Alessia’s family and friends started a non-profit society called GGMS, fundraising to equip facilities with AEDs in memory of her father.

Angela Austria
Nunavut

Angela Austria

Nunavut

Currently, there is plenty of available land that could be used to build a multi-purpose housing complex that would generate revenue from leasing- while also serving our aging population. This would provide the necessary support for family services, alongside an assisted housing/nursing home near our hospital. This approach can end up costing significantly less than building new structures, such as apartments, while still earning revenue. In conclusion, multi-purpose buildings are nationally repeatable, have much potential when it comes to both providing seniors with what they need, alongside saving money and making a profit.

Corbin Holmes-Smillie
Ontario

Corbin Holmes-Smillie

Ontario

Corbin wants to combat the opioid crisis by changing the legislation surrounding incarceration—by lobbying pharmaceutical companies to fund treatment facilities for repeat offenders. He wants to give hope to every child suffering the absence or loss of a parent due to substance abuse.

David Fan
Ontario

David Fan

Ontario

To help battle rising suicide rates in Aboriginal youth, David wants to create a non-profit organization that collects sports equipment and recruits coaches to travel to Aboriginal reserves to provide accessible recreational activities.

Jarod Meiklejohn
Ontario

Jarod Meiklejohn

Ontario

Coming from a reservation in Sault Ste. Marie, Jarod knows there are a lot of bright minds in those communities that don’t get the nurturing or support they need. He wants to provide workshops to help young people uncover their potential and give them the guidance they need to pursue what they love.

Logan Gillingham
Ontario

Logan Gillingham

Ontario

Logan wants to create awareness of parasports, and he’s starting by hosting a sledge hockey game (a sport designed for people with physical disabilities) between his sledge team and the stand-up hockey team in his hometown. His goal? Grow the event with OHL and NHL teams across Canada!

Emma Bishop
Nova Scotia

Emma Bishop

Nova Scotia

Emma wants to start “Build a Backpack,” a program that would provide lower-income families with back-to-school supplies. This is a financially stressful time of year for many families, and donated school supplies would help give all children an equal start at the school year.

Oliver Baker
Nova Scotia

Oliver Baker

Nova Scotia

Oliver’s idea is called “10 in 10”—a project and challenge for people across Canada to pick up 10 pieces of plastic in 10 minutes on October 10th. It’s a simple and easy way to help get rid of the plastic that’s doing massive damage to our ecosystem.

Harkirat Bhullar
Saskatchewan

Harkirat Bhullar

Saskatchewan

Although there are many support services for families affected by autism, there is no central database where they can find all the services available. Harkirat wants to build a digital tool that can list the various service providers in his community, across Canada, and around the world.

Jade Collins
Newfoundland

Jade Collins

Newfoundland

LGBT+ phobias are still widespread across Newfoundland. Jade wants to organise LGBT+ educational activities in her community, and coordinate a local pride parade—because by educating people outside the LGBT+ community she can help create a safer and more loving environment for those on the inside.
