About Youth for Christ Canada

Youth for Christ Canada believes that transformed youth have the opportunity to transform communities, our country, and the world. We engage and equip youth to know and follow Jesus.  YFC imparts God’s love, truth and hope to young people from all walks of life regardless of race, faith, economic level, or cultural background. We see the hope and potential in every young person we meet, and we reach them through community specific programs.

Youth for Christ in Canada carries out local ministry through our Chapters – from Halifax in the east to Vancouver Island in the west. Our model allows us to learn from ministry best practices across the country while still allowing a Chapter to develop their unique approach and take on a flavour all of its own to meet local ministry needs.
