Our Affiliates


The First Call affiliates provide a unified, strong and respected voice for BC’s children and youth.

First Call’s advocacy is grounded in the 4 Keys to Success for Children and Youth. And it is informed by the cross-sectoral expertise and province-wide reach of our diverse network of affiliates. Affiliates meet monthly to discuss emerging issues and set priorities. Affiliates working in early childhood development (ECD) meet bi-monthly in an ECD Roundtable.

First Call’s network of affiliates now number over 110 provincial and regional member organizations from a wide variety of sectors.

A number of government departments or organizations support the 4 Keys to Success for Children and Youth and send representatives to participate in our monthly network meetings as well. These liaison relationships are currently in place with the following organizations:

BC Representative for Children and Youth 
Public Health Agency of Canada
Ministry of Children and Family Development
Human Early Learning Partnership, UBC
BC School Trustees’ Association

We invite your organization to join us and add your voice to our call to put children and youth first.

UWCV“Members of The University Women’s Club of Vancouver at Hycroft are proud to be active partners of First Call. We regularly use First Call’s materials in our own advocacy work to promote an end to Child Poverty in B.C. First Call is an important voice for the most vulnerable children and youth in B.C. and we gladly lend our support to such an important and vital organization.”
