Nov. 20 is National Child Day — the day we celebrate Canada’s signed commitment to two child-rights documents: the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of the Child (1959) and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989).

Canada’s signing of these documents means that the government will acknowledge, respect and support the rights of children regardless of their circumstances, race, gender, sexual orientation, ability or any other factor.
