Letter to Premier Clark: Make BC’s Children and Young Families a Priority: A Call to Action


May 2015

BC Premier Christy Clark was sent a copy of Make BC’s Young Children and Families a Priority: A Call to Action along with this letter on May 6, 2015; an email with a link to A Call to Action was sent to all MLAs.

First Call published its early childhood development call to action Make BC’s Young Children and Families a Priority: A Call to Action in March 2015.

The document was based on its previously published Framework for Action, which defines the essential components of an effective early-year strategy, including the need for a province-wide approach to ensuring healthy child development in BC.

Make BC’s Young Children and Families a Priority also noted that First Call’s Framework for Action remained a valid blueprint for action, but that political will and the commitment to act had not been realized.
