First Call Briefing Note to Minister of Children and Family Development Katrine Conroy and Minister of State for Child Care Katrina Chen


On September 28, 2017, First Call: BC Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition met with Minister of Children and Family Development Katrine Conroy and Minister of State for Child Care Katrina Chen, and presented the following briefing note to highlight our coalition’s priorities regarding child welfare and early childhood development, and invited Ministers Conroy and Chen and their staff to attend First Call coalition meetings in the future:

Please think of our coalition and its many members as a resource you may consult in the development of policy and practice within your ministry and across government that affects children, youth and families.

We also offer an efficient vehicle for the Ministry and government to communicate with community-based child and youth advocates across sectors (education, child welfare, health, youth services, immigrant services, early childhood, etc.). Two-way communication allows us to be able to share information about government initiatives and plans with our members and wider networks, as appropriate.
