Together we raise tomorrow. Children's charter : summing up : what Albertans said about an Alberta children's charter

Description

On June 19, 2013, the Government of Alberta launched Together We Raise Tomorrow, a public engagement on how to better support the well-being, safety, security, education, and health of all children in Alberta. The engagement formed part of the province's year-long focus on working with communities to improve the quality of life for children and families, including the passage of the Children First Act in May 2013. This focused work on issues affecting children aligns directly with the goals Albertans identified under Alberta's Social Policy Framework: reducing inequality, protecting vulnerable people, enabling collaboration and partnerships, and creating a person-centred system of high quality services. Public engagement under Together We Raise Tomorrow took place from June 19 to October 31, 2013. During this time, Albertans were asked to share their ideas on: Eliminating child poverty and reducing overall poverty; Improving early childhood development; and Developing an Alberta children's charter This summary document identifies common themes and provides a high-level overview of the feedback received through Together We Raise Tomorrow.
