Thank you for

Check out this message from mayor Doug McCallum:

A word from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:

“Since 2010, the Close Look United Foundation has provided a platform for youth to showcase their unique talents. This important platform has empowered young people to demonstrate their abilities to a broader audience while increasing their confidence in themselves and enabling them to realize their full potential.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic has made planning and hosting events like this especially difficult, and I would like to thank the dedicated organizers at the Close Look United Foundation for making this event possible.”

About Us

Who Are We ?

Close Look was first established as a social enterprise in 2010. The main purpose was to build the confidence and self-esteem of the younger generation, by promoting their talents. After the success of our first project, we started two motivational platforms for youth: 1) Close Look Magazine and 2) Close Look Podcast. These outlets uncover youth issues, by encouraging the youth themselves to produce the content, and to be a part of the conversation!

We are proud to say that the writers of our magazine and the hosts of our podcasts are school-aged and university students who believe in raising their voices to make a difference in their community.
Close Look is the stage that has been set to encourage and boost the inner wisdom of the younger generation, so that they along with the world can embrace their own qualities and nurture them. This certainly provides youth with the opportunity to pursue positive life paths, deterring them away from antisocial behaviours.

It’s more than a show – it’s a MOVEMENT!

Our Mission

Close Look looks forward to bridge the gap between generations, through a common language of arts and culture. We achieve this by providing resources and platforms which include television, print, and digital platforms.

Our Vision

Offering inspiration to our community, through our community.
