Coalition meetings are a chance for coalition members and the public to hear updates about and provide input towards First Call’s advocacy work, to learn about emerging issues facing children and youth and to facilitate dialogue across sectors and with government decision-makers.
Coalition meetings take place in Vancouver and via teleconference from 9:15 – 11:30 am on the second Wednesday of every month from September to June. Everyone is welcome to attend coalition meetings; you do not need to be a coalition member. Attendees are encouraged to arrive at 9 am for coffee and to get settled, the meeting begins at 9:15 am.
