Prior Years

OCYI's 2022 annual meeting was a virtual Town Hall on September 14, 2022, 2-4 pm.


The Town Hall featured a moderated panel of Ottawa youth discussing mental health. The Data Briefs from the 2021 Child & Youth Well-being survey of over 600 Ottawa kids ages 9-18 were the panel's conversation starter. You can check out the Data Briefs available here.


After the panel, Town Hall attendees met in breakout rooms to further discuss what they have learned from the youth panelists and what actions their organizations can take in response.
