National Child Day is an important day for all Canadians, especially children. Canada has declared November 20th as National Child Day to celebrate the rights of children. November 20th was chosen as the day to celebrate National Child Day because the United Nations adopted the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) on November 20, 1989. National Child Day was first established in Canada in 1993 (Bill C-371).
National Child Day celebrates the role that children play in Canadian communities. Additionally, it honours the protection of their rights by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
