National Summit for the Canadian Children's Charter

Children First Canada was honoured to host the National Summit for the Canadian Children's Charter, in partnership with Wisdom2Action. 

The National Summit took place in Ottawa on November 20-22, 2017, where children and youth met with leaders of children’s charities, corporations, government and the media. Together, they created the first draft of the Canadian Children’s Charter: a call to action to respect, protect and fulfill the rights of children.

The youth delegates had the opportunity to meet with Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, visit the Prime Minister's Office, meet with MPs and Senators, and present the draft Canadian Children's Charter at the National Press Gallery on Parliament Hill.
