National Child Day was November 20th
To celebrate, the Society for Children and Youth and their partners: the United Way of the Lower Mainland, the Representative for Children and Youth, and UFV’s Centre for Safe Schools and Communities placed a child rights awareness message in Skytrains, Canada Line cars, and buses throughout the province starting on November 18th!
Raising awareness about the rights of children and youth in BC is important. An Ipsos Reid poll conducted in 2006 found that less than half of British Columbians knew that children have rights, yet over 80% they wanted to learn more.
