Canada is the 5th most prosperous nation in the world, but Canadian kids aren’t reaping the benefits. We rank 17th globally for the wellbeing of children, and drop to 27th place for child health and safety. We can and must do better: Canada’s future depends on it.

After its initial 2016 launch on the EC platform in Toronto, Children First is proud to bring this important discussion to Ottawa. Join Sara L. Austin, Founder, President and CEO of Children First Canada alongside youth representative Ashley Whiteman and The Honourable Landon Pearson. The Globe and Mail’s André Picard will be serving as moderator.
