Established in 1922, Youth Parliament of Manitoba (YPM) is a non-partisan, non-denominational, non-profit organization that educates youth in effective public speaking and the parliamentary process. It is open to all youth in the Canadian province of Manitoba who will be between 16 and 20 years old as of December 31 of the year of the upcoming Winter Session. Session takes place each year from 26 - 30 December at the Manitoba Legislature in the capital city of Winnipeg. YPM is a model parliament and bases its organizational structure and nomenclature on the Westminster Parliamentary system. YPM has three primary, organizational groups: the Board of Directors (also known as the Parliamentary Executive), the Cabinet, and the backbenchers. (The backbenchers and the Cabinet are also collectively termed Members-at-Large.) As well, Senators and an Honorary President can be appointed by the Board of Directors from time to time.
