A Vision for Canada's Children, Youth and Families

#WeCANforKids

SHAPING
THE 
FUTURE

Canadians imagine a better future for children, youth and families.

 

To make this vision a reality, youth, parents, researchers, educators, advocates, policymakers, service providers, community and business leaders and others came together to co-create Inspiring Healthy Futures.

 

It’s a commitment that will be the foundation for leaders, organizations and governments to create a healthier, stronger future for children, youth and families in Canada.

 

That commitment starts now.

 

Why Now?

WHY

NOW?

Because every day in the life of a child matters.

In 2021, we co-created an action framework centered around mobilized communities and spanning youth initiatives, research collaborations, grassroots parent groups, advocacy initiatives, and community and industry partnerships.

Vision-and-Priorities-WITH-NO-EXTRA-TEXT

In 2023, the federal government took a significant step toward improving the health and well-being of children and youth when it re-negotiated the Canada Health Transfer and announced $2 billion to improve child and youth health outcomes.

 

With Inspiring Healthy Futures 2.0, let’s capitalize on that momentum to create A Future Fit For Kids.
