This full day forum is designed for service providers who work with young children, with parents of young children, or who have the opportunity to influence the health and development of young children.
The Best Start Resource Centre team is pleased to announce a Province-wide Forum on Child Poverty in Toronto, Ontario. This Province-wide Forum will address pertinent information for service providers working with families with young children (0-6 years old) living in poverty. It will share information about rates of child poverty, consequences of child poverty, strategies that influence the impact of child poverty, and strategies that influence the rate of child poverty. Registration will start at 8:30 am and the forum will end at 4:30 pm.
Participants are invited to bring relevant resources and information to the Forum to share.
There will be space available for programs to bring material that is relevant (research, programs and services, policies) and relates to the issue of working with families and young children (0-6) living in poverty.
