Model City Hall Hamilton

Welcome to the Hamilton division of Model City Hall, a youth-led Canadian non-profit organization aimed at making municipal politics accessible to high school students. MCHH was Co-Founded by Ruby Hye and Cassidy Bereskin in 2018. 

Model City Hall Hamilton runs a free annual conference at Hamilton City Hall that aims to stimulate civic engagement amongst high school students. Students from all over the GTHA choose a committee, where they simulate council chamber debates and collaborate to create documents that provide solutions to key municipal issues. The issues discussed and resolved correspond with recent debate items in City Hall. Councillors, Trustees, Politicians, and Non-profit leaders are invited to participate in our collaborative committees, where they hear what Hamilton youth have to say, thus creating positive dialogue between the decision makers of today and tomorrow. 

In 2019, we partnered with McMaster University & The Socrates Project. Our next conference is scheduled for February 9th, 2020! Stay tuned for more information about registration.
