National Child Day November 20


NOVEMBER 20, 2019

National Child Day is celebrated in Canada on November 20 in recognition of our country’s commitment to upholding the rights of children and two historic events: the 1959 signing of the UN Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989.

2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child sets out the rights of children with 54 articles that provide us with a solid road map of what is needed to raise healthy and happy children and youth.

Watch this page for updates on 2019 events happening across the province. In the meantime, feel free to check out our archive of resources from previous years.




Thank you to our partners across Alberta who have donated their time throughout the year and to plan and celebrate National Child Day.
