Catalytic Investments in Kids: Reversing the Impacts of COVID-19

The kids in Canada are not alright

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed a disproportionate burden on children and youth. School closures and disruptions have led to poor mental health, learning loss and vulnerability to abuse. And the pandemic has exacerbated the top 10 threats to childhood.  

As our country rebuilds from the COVID-19 pandemic, there is an urgent and compelling need to make big, bold investments in Canada’s most valuable natural resource: children and youth.


On June 7 at 12 p.m. ET, Children First Canada (CFC) is pleased to host a special high-level event to catalyze investments in children and youth in collaboration with the Coalition for a Better Future. The event aims to mobilize public and private sector resources to reverse the damaging impacts of the pandemic on kids. 

Date: Tuesday, June 7
Time: 12 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. ET
