Advocacy


Your voice is powerful. It can move mountains. Unleash the power of your voice for child advocacy.

Join Canadians across the country in creating a better world for children, families and communities through policy work and poverty advocacy.

Advocacy is speaking up for people facing a problem or challenge and making sure their voices are heard. It's calling others to be part of the answer and working to find solutions that deal not only with the symptoms, but with the causes underneath.

There could be so many ‘quick fixes’ – but they wouldn’t last. Partnering with communities, we help them become stronger, healthier and more resourceful than before. Parents can provide for their children today and have reason to dream for the future.

Together, we create hope that endures for generations to come.
