National Child Day

November 20th of each year marks the occasion when Canada adopted the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and this day is called the National Child Day. Celebrating National Child Day is about celebrating children as active participants in their own lives and as active citizens who can meaningfully contribute to decision-making in their communities. Take time to celebrate children’s rights on National Child Day and throughout the year!
