Youth Commission



What is the GIMYC?

The Gaspésie-Îles-de-la-Madeleine Youth Commission’s (GIMYC) or La Commission jeunesse Gaspésie–Îles-de-la-Madeleine (CJGÎM) mission is to represent Gaspesian and Magdelan island youth, ages 12 to 35, to various partners and stakeholders. The organization helps get these young people to get involved in their communities. The GIMYC supports regional development projects that promote posterity and fosters new talent.

Regional Consultation

From February 12 to March 9 2018, nearly 2000 young people took part in this event to share their views on the region, and talk about the many programmes and services made specifically for them

Our Contests

The L’implication, c’pas juste pour ta grand-mère! contest is there to recognize young Gaspesians and Magdalen Islanders, ages 12 to 17 who are involved in their communities.

The Je prends ma place contest is there to recognize, promote, and reward the volunteer efforts of Gaspesians and Magdalen Islanders, ages 18 to 35, all while highlighting their talents, creativity and determination.


Getting involved isn’t hard! We do it for ourselves, for our friends, for our families, and for others! Here are some young people who have gotten involved in their communities. It’s your turn now to follow suit!
