Celebrate National Child Day

November 20 is National Child Day in Canada, a day to celebrate the rights of children everywhere to live happy, healthy lives, and to ensure they reach their full potential.

To celebrate, the City of St. John’s has prepared a video highlighting the City’s programs and services that ensure children are active participants in their own lives and active citizens who can and should meaningfully contribute to community decision-making. 

Children have universal rights, as defined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

On National Child Day, the City of St. John’s encourages everyone to wear blue in support of this important day.
