2015 Provincial Budget Submission: Make BC’s Children and Youth the Priority for “Balanced Budget 2015”

September 2014

First Call submitted this written brief to the BC Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services. (Each fall, the Select Standing Committee holds province-wide public consultations on the next provincial budget, then drafts recommendations based on the input given.)

The brief was framed in child-rights language, with recommendations structured around First Call’s 4 Keys to Success for Children and Youth that highlight the value of investing in children and the costs of underinvesting.

First Call provincial coordinator Adrienne Montani also made an oral presentation to the committee when it was in Vancouver on September 18, 2014.
