Celebrate National Child Day and a child’s right to belong on November 20, 2016!
National Child Day is celebrated annually on November 20th and reaffirms our country’s commitment to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC.) The CRC outline our responsibility in keeping our children safe, healthy and engaged. The theme this year is a young person’s right to belong. Identity and belonging are about children developing a positive sense of who they are and feeling that they are valued and respected as part of a family, school and community. By celebrating National Child Day you are raising awareness of the rights of children in Alberta, and contributing to a healthy environment where children can grow and prosper with adequate resources.

Please visit www.nationalchildday.ca to learn more about National Child Day, access planning resources and find events happening in the community.
