Child and Youth Initiatives in Canada
UNICEF Canada creates and stewards initiatives in partnership with a range of organizations and young people themselves that get Canadians engaged in promoting children’s rights and well-being.
National Child Day is celebrated in Canada on November 20 in recognition of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is the perfect time for young Canadians to express themselves and shape their own future.
Global Classroom is UNICEF Canada’s portal to support teaching and learning for global citizenship and rights respecting education.
Local governments are closest to children – to their families and communities. Child Friendly Cities in Canada and worldwide are using governance processes to ensure children are considered in decisions that affect them.
