The set of values ​​and pride in belonging transcends the generations here in Hemmingford. They feed the pride of youth in the community. The Mayor, Mr. Paul Viau, expresses that, “it is our youth who will benefit from the investments and choices we make today.” In a recent study by the CAI Global Group, a consulting firm, the local youth were consulted, noting the importance of their role in our community. Their involvement in this project confirms the continued commitment to keep Hemmingford moving forward towards an era of growth and prosperity.

In order to put these findings into practice, the youth of the area have banded together to form a junior council who will work in partnership with the Hemmingford Sustainable Development Committee, to determine sustainable goals and develop a short and long term action plan. Under the supervision of Mrs. Jayne McNaughton, Executive Vice President and Partner of CAI Global, and Mr. Gregg Edwards, teacher of our region’s youth for 41 years, this young group will assist the Sustainable Development Committee to achieve the objectives delineated in the action plan in the economic, social and environmental spheres.
