Since 1993, National Child Day has been celebrated across Canada on November 20th each year.
This special day commemorates the United Nations' adoption of two documents centred on children's rights: the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child on November 20, 1959, and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child on November 20, 1989. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child was ratified in Canada in 1991. With this passing, Canada made the commitment that all children have rights and should be treated with dignity and respect.
In honouring National Child Day this November, Network celebrates children, that they should be seen and heard as active participants in their own lives and in our community.
