Join us on Monday June 5th at the Kerr Street Café in Oakville, Ontario, for a special event in support of Children First Canada.
Hosted by Christie Henderson and Mary Jo Haddad
Most Canadians think of this as being one of the best places to raise a child, but that simply isn’t true. While Canada is the 5th most prosperous nation, we are ranked 17th out of 29 affluent nations for children’s wellbeing, and we rank near the bottom when it comes to measuring child poverty and children’s health and safety. We can and must do better for the sake of all of Canada's children.
Rather than acting alone, Children First Canada is harnessing the power of children’s charities and hospitals, research institutes, corporations, community leaders, and children themselves. Through collective impact, we are driving measurable changes to improve the lives of all of Canada's children.
Children First was founded by Sara Austin, a passionate champion for children with 20 years of experience in the charitable sector. Sara’s efforts to improve the lives of kids have earned her the Top 25 Women of Influence and Top 100 Most Powerful Women. We are proud to support Sara in launching a national movement to make Canada a world-leading country for children.
Please come and learn more about the urgent issues facing Canada’s kids, and consider lending your support.
Tickets are $25 and 100% of the funds will go towards Children First Canada, thanks to the generous support of Henderson Partners LLP.
