Children First Canada is excited to announce the launch of the National Child Day website! Check out the website for the latest details on their National Child Day events and confirmed speakers. The site will be updated regularly with new info on how you can celebrate National Child Day wherever you are!
This year marks a special milestone: the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child! On the heels of the federal election, Canada will also have a new government in place, making it a timely occasion to discuss the urgent, unfinished business of children's rights in Canada.
Children First Canada is holding a forum for kids and youth to learn about their rights and the Canadian Children's Charter and involve them in closing the gap between the promises made and the realities they experience in their daily lives.
They will also be hosting a forum for leaders of the federal government, charities, hospitals, research institutes and major corporations that invest in kids, to take stock of the current challenges and create a plan of action - with children, for children!
While this national forum is taking place in Ottawa, satellite events will be happening across the country. You'll get the chance to hear from children and adults from coast to coast to coast, and be a part of a national conversation on what it will take to make Canada the best place in the world for kids to grow up.
