National Child Day - November 20, 2017
This is the image for the news article titled National Child Day - November 20, 2017National Child Day is celebrated annually on November 20th and reaffirms our country’s commitment to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC.) The CRC outlines our responsibility in keeping our children safe, healthy and engaged. The theme this year is a young person’s right to be safe. 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.

There are many reasons to celebrate children, but most of all because children deserve to be recognized as important members of our community.
• All children have the right to an adequate standard of living, health care and to play.
• All children have the right to express their views about things that affect them and to participate in communities, programs and services.
• All children have the right to be protected from abuse, neglect, exploitation and discrimination.
Many children in Alberta do not have the basics – affordable housing or quality childcare, for example. As a province rich in children, it is important for Albertans to recognize National Child Day. As a community, we are able to have the most direct positive impact on the lives of children.
