who we are and what we do

Youthspace.ca is made up of a community of volunteers who are here to support you – whatever you are going through.

All volunteers are trained in emotional support, crisis response, and ASIST Suicide First Aid.

We won’t give you advice, or tell you what to do because we believe you know you best! We work to empower you to live your healthiest life. We will support you in the moment, encourage you to explore your thoughts, feelings, fears, options, ideas, and resources.

We are constantly learning and growing as an agency. Part of our commitment to community is that we provide a welcoming and inclusive space for all. Thank you to all our local supporters and partners for sharing knowledge so we can continue to learn. If you have suggestions on how we can improve our service, please email us at support@youthspace.ca.
