City of Toronto to recognize National Child Day tomorrow
Tomorrow is National Child Day, a day which acknowledges the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and their rights as active participants in their own lives and communities and recognizes that children should have opportunities for meaningful contributions to decision making. Canada adopted the UNCRC in 1991.

To mark this occasion, local students in Grades 4 and 5 will be at City Hall to share their ideas with senior City leaders about how to make Toronto a more child-friendly city.

Photo and interview opportunities will be available with Mayor John Tory, Toronto's Medical Officer of Health Dr. Eileen de Villa and Shanley McNamee, Interim General Manager, Toronto Children's Services.

Date: Tuesday, November 20
Time: 10 a.m.
Location: Committee Room 1, City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.
