National Child Day is celebrated annually on Nov. 20 in recognition of Canada’s commitment to upholding the rights of children and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC.) In countries and communities where awareness of children’s rights is high, children are healthier, safer and happier.
By celebrating National Child Day you are raising awareness of the rights of children in Alberta, and contributing to a healthy environment where children can grow and prosper with adequate resources.
