The Kids Are Not Alright: The Urgent Need for a National Dialogue to Invest in the Wellbeing of Canada’s Children
This is a guest post submitted by Sara L. Austin, Founder and President/CEO of Children's First Canada.
Canada is the 5th most prosperous nation in the world, but Canadian kids aren’t reaping the benefits. We rank 17th globally for the wellbeing of children, and drop to 27th place for child health and safety. We can and must do better: Canada’s future depends on it.
After Children First's initial 2016 launch on the EC platform in Toronto, we are proud to bring this important discussion to Ottawa.
