NOVEMBER 20, 2019

National Child Day is celebrated in Canada on November 20 in recognition of our country’s commitment to upholding the rights of children and two historic events: the 1959 signing of the UN Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989.

2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child sets out the rights of children with 54 articles that provide us with a solid road map of what is needed to raise healthy and happy children and youth.

Watch this page for updates on 2019 events happening across the province. In the meantime, check out our video about the rights of young people and start planning how you’ll celebrate this year!
