2019-20 First Call Annual Report


This year, we are reporting on activities over an eighteen-month period beginning in January 2019 and ending June 2020. The collective voice of our members has been critical during COVID 19.

Together, we have achieved two very big successes for children and their families over the past 18 months. Families will begin receiving BC’s New Child Opportunity Benefit this month, thanks to First Call’s research and advocacy. After over fifteen years of First Call advocacy, in 2019 the BC government legislated better employment standards for children and youth in the workplace.
