Join us in Calgary for National Child Day (Satellite Event)

  • Career and Technology Centre at Lord Shaughnessy School 2336 53 Avenue SW Calgary, AB (map)

This year National Child Day marks a special milestone: the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child!

On the heels of a federal election, Canada will also have a new government in place, making it a timely occasion to discuss the unfinished business of children's rights in Canada and the urgent need for action. 

Join us in Calgary and hear from children and adults from coast to coast to coast and join in a national conversation on what it will take to make Canada the best place in the world for kids to grow up.

This year’s celebrations include:

  • Interactive discussions with children and youth about their rights and the Canadian Children's Charter, and how to close the gap between the promises made and the realities of their daily lives. 

  • Presentations from community leaders that work with and invest in kids, to take stock of the current challenges and create a plan of action. 

  • Connections with National Child Day celebrations across the country, including events in Ottawa, Halifax and Iqaluit.

We hope you can make it!

Presented by: Calgary National Child Day Coalition

In Partnership with: Children First Canada, as a satellite event of the National Child Day Summit in Ottawa
