Celebrate Toronto’s diversity with a calendar from Children’s Services
The 2007 City of Toronto Children’s Services Multi-Ethnic Calendar is now on sale. The calendar, which features artwork from the creative talents of children attending Toronto Children’s Services programs, can be enjoyed year-round.

Each month features a different masterpiece from the hands of children from across the city. These budding artists range in age from 15 months to eight years, and the images they have produced are as vital and diverse as their communities. The calendar is also a good source of information about holidays and festivals that are celebrated around the world.

Through the calendar, Children’s Services, in a small way, seeks to acknowledge the many different cultures and communities that call the great City of Toronto home. The calendar is just one example of the Toronto Government’s commitment to creativity and learning, as well as to access and equity.

Toronto Children’s Services is a place where all kids and quality truly matter. This includes providing child care environments that meet the needs of the children the division serves, and both respecting and celebrating the racial and cultural diversity of families in Toronto.

The cost of the calendar is $5. To order a calendar, please contact Sheila Gilby at 416-392-3317 or by e-mail at
