Youth X Canada: Music Tour 2017 is a unique and inspiring project designed to discover, explore and celebrate the diversity of Canada’s geographic, cultural and musical landscapes as seen from the perspective of young, aspiring Canadian music artists.
As we join together to celebrate our country’s 150th Anniversary, this energetic group of young music artists from different musical backgrounds, will travel across Canada visiting local Youth Centres and Indigenous Communities, sharing experiences, hosting music workshops and performing.
During their travels, the Youth X Canada team will be documenting and sharing their experiences through social media and encouraging everyone to celebrate the wonder of Canada’s rich cultural and musical diversity.

Share the journey with fellow Canadians through social media
Given the size and scope of this tour, partners, supporters and contributors are always welcome. Canada is a vast and geographically diverse country, therefor transportation, accommodations & hospitality are always a challenge. In addition to our designated tour stops, we are also looking for unique & interesting Canadian locations to visit - it could be a small community with a special story to tell, an awesome out of the way restaurant, location or business you'd like us to visit, or maybe even an iconic Canadian personality that would like to share some time with us. We are open to any and all suggestions.
