National Child Day 2022

November 21, 2022


On November 20, Canada celebrates National Child Day to commemorate our country’s dedication to protecting children’s rights, as well as two historical events: the signing of the UN Declaration in 1959 and the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989. This year’s theme is to support children and their right to a safe, healthy, engaging and active childhood.

National Child Day 2022 focused on empowering children and youth to #SeenAndHeard. Children have so much to say – the world should listen. Similarly, this year’s theme for World Children’s Day is inclusion and protection against discrimination, which are the fundamental rights of every child.
