National Child Day

Niagara celebrates National Child Day each year on November 20 to recognize the Niagara Children's Charter of Rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states that children should have a voice in all matters that affect them, in accordance with their age and maturity (Article 12). Opportunities should be created where children can meaningfully participate alongside adults, particularly in decision-making.

See the National Child Day activities this year here.

You can take part in National Child Day by participating or planning activities that call attention to the importance of children's rights and celebrate all children. Feel free to use the sample media release and/or sample letter to dignitaries.  You can also visit the Tools and Links page to help get you started.  If you are planning an activity to celebrate National Child Day, pleasen contact us to help promote your event.
