Child Advocates Call on the Federal Government to Prioritize Children in Budget 2021

As a third wave of COVID-19 sweeps the nation, Children First Canada and our Council of Champions are calling on the federal government to make children a high priority in Canada’s COVID-19 response and economic recovery plans in Budget 2021.

Canada currently ranks 30th out of 38 OECD nations for protecting the well-being of children.[1] This marks a sharp decline from Canada’s rank of 10th place in 2010. One of the primary reasons for Canada’s previous success was due to dedicated federal leadership and the investment of financial resources to tackle the top threats to childhood.
