National Child Day
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, children and youth have demonstrated extraordinary resiliency and leadership. They have been leaders within their families, schools, communities – and even at a national level. There is no better time to celebrate the enormous contributions of kids than on National Child Day!
National Child Day 2020
Children First Canada would like to thank everyone who attended our National Child Day 2020 digital event. We were thrilled to have more than 3,000 people registered – including kids, adults, families, schools, youth activists, politicians and industry leaders from across the country! Special thanks to our various sponsors and partners. The success of this event would not have been possible without your generous support.
Thank you for helping children in Canada to be #8MillonStrong!

Leaders of today and tomorrow
The Young Canadians’ Parliament is a growing movement of young people under 18 who are speaking up for their rights and sharing their views with parliamentarians. Together, they serve as a powerful voice for their generation.
One in three children in Canada do not enjoy a safe and healthy childhood – and the impacts of COVID-19 have made things worse. We’re urging the federal government to invest in the lives of children and protect their rights. Sign our Call to Action now!
