Jayden Paquet-Noiseux (17) is a passionate youth leader in his community of Mont Saint-Hilaire Qc and is a first-year student at the University of Ottawa. His work with Children First Canada has been multifaceted, from being a YCP Activator to hosting events, being a panellist, and volunteering as a facilitator and youth consultant. He now serves as the Chair of CFC’s Youth Advisory Council (YAC).

Jayden has always invested a lot of his time in his school’s community outreach programs and with other organizations that focus on helping others. School hasn’t particularly been easy for him as he was a victim of bullying at the primary level and has had to overcome a lot of hurdles due to ADHD, dyslexia and dyscalculia.

In the last few years, he has been recognized Provincially, winning many awards and scholarships such as The Lieutenant Governor’s Medal for Youth. His dedication, perseverance, involvement and advocacy work continue to inspire youth and adults alike.
