Children represent a quarter of Canada’s population and 100% of our future. They are citizens with rights, opinions and ideas. Kids deserve to have a say in decisions that affect their lives. And adults have a duty to listen.
This year, we honour the contributions of young people from coast to coast to coast. We see you. We hear you. On National Child Day, lift your voice!
