National Child Day – November 20, 2017

Welcome to the National Child Day Alberta website. National Child Day is celebrated annually in Canada on November 20th in recognition of our country’s commitment to upholding the rights of children.

In 1959 Canada signed the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and in 1999, it was endorsed by Alberta. The UNCRC 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. The 2017 theme is a child’s right to be safe.

Thank you to our provincial partners who have donated their employees’ time to recognize children’s rights throughout the year and also celebrate National Child Day.
