Close Gaps through Systemic Change: Implement Children’s Rights in Canada

The Canadian Coalition for the Rights of Children (CCRC) is a national umbrella group of organizations and individuals committed to the full implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in Canada and globally. It recently released its Alternative Report for the 5th/6th Review of Canada Under the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The report focuses on four key elements:

  1. Positive steps in good governance for children’s rights;
  2. Failures to implement past recommendations that would help Canadian children;
  3. Questions the Canadian government needs to answer; and
  4. Recommendations for actions to improve the systems of governance in Canada
