CCCYA National Advocacy Standards


The Canadian Council of Child and Youth Advocates (CCCYA) is an alliance of provincial and territorial advocates. Each of its members has a legal mandate to support child rights. Our office joined the CCCYA in 2014.

The CCCYA has approved national advocacy standards. These standards guide the work of all child and youth advocacy offices in Canada. They are minimum standards that ensure a consistent quality of advocacy work.
