The five strategic priorities

Through The 2030 Québec Youth Policy: Working Together for Present and Future Generations, the government is defining the framework for its initiatives aimed at young people in light of five strategic priorities.

The strategic priorities include a series of specific objectives that clarify the meaning of the desired government action. In this way, the government hopes to promote, in particular, healthy dietary habits, enhance student retention, encourage citizen engagement, promote employability and work-family life-study balance, and thus support the entrepreneurship culture among young people.

The common objective is clearly to offer Québec young people a stimulating, healthy, safe, open environment and to help them in their learning and their projects.

  1. foster healthy dietary habits;
