Today, November 20th, is National Child Day in Canada!

What is National Child Day?

National Child Day is celebrated on November 20th every year. 

This day has been celebrated since 1993 to commemorate the United Nation’s adoption of 2 children’s rights documents:

  • The United Nations Declaration of Rights of the Child
  • The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child

These documents help by ensuring children have a voice, are protected from harm and be provided with their basic needs and every opportunity to reach their full potential.
