National Child’s day will be celebrated on Nov 20, 2015. Canada and countries around the world celebrate National Child Day annually as a reminder of our shared commitment to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). National Child Day is an opportunity to engage our community as a whole about key issues and their implications for children in our province. In 2015 the theme in Alberta is ‘It’s Our Right to Learn’. Show your support by wearing a blue ribbon, distributing resources and / or attending an upcoming National Child Day event.
