Charitable Registration #: 824058705RR0001
Your Canada, Your Constitution (YCYC) is a Canadian charity that does research and education about the history, and ongoing development, of Canada’s Constitution and governments. Seed funding has been provided by a private foundation.
What is YCYC’s Mission?
YCYC will pursue its goals by developing educational materials and participating in educational programs, courses, workshops, seminars, conferences and public events on these topics. YCYC will also maintain a website; undertake social media initiatives; hold essay, poster and video contests; publish accessible, popular reports; and network with other organizations.
YCYC’s activities will all be aimed especially at increasing public knowledge, and generating public discussion and full consideration of:
- Canada’s history as a constitutional monarchy, past proposals for change, and possible future as a fully independent democracy based on popular sovereignty;
- the role of the Governor General and provincial lieutenant governors, and the relationship between them and the Prime Minister, provincial premiers and cabinets and legislatures and politicians; and
- how people in other countries have addressed questions and issues concerning their constitutions and fundamental structures and operations of their governments.
Canada will be 150 years old as of July 1, 2017, and what better national public discussion and educational exploration to have leading up to that anniversary than about Canada’s Constitution, which contains key rules for how our governments and country work.
Many recent surveys show that a large majority of Canadians think Canada’s constitutional Charter of Rights and Freedoms is a world-leading document, but that there are many other fundamental problems with Canada’s Constitution and governments, and that they want changes to make a new constitution.
Of the total population of about 34 million Canadians, about 9 million are age 15-34, and they have never taken part in a public discussion of Canada’s Constitution as they were not old enough to have voted in the 1992 Charlottetown Accord referendum nor the 1995 Quebec referendum. Another 5 million have immigrated to Canada in the past 20 years. As a result, about 14 million Canadians (41% of the total population) have never been asked by governments about what they think of Canada’s Constitution.

“It ought to be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things. Because the innovator has for enemies all those who have done well under the old conditions, and lukewarm defenders in those who may do well under the new.”
— Nicolo Machiavelli, The Prince
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”
