THE MANITOBA ADVOCATE’S STATEMENT OF CONCERN
A Call to Action: A Mental Health and Addictions System to Meet the Needs of Children and Youth
What we need here in Manitoba is a continuum of youth mental health and addiction services and supports that are evidence-based, culturally-safe, trauma-informed, and accessible when they are needed.

CANADIAN COUNCIL OF CHILD AND YOUTH ADVOCATES (CCCYA) STATEMENT OF CONCERN
A National Paper on Youth Suicide
As part of its work, the Council has been actively monitoring what the provincial, territorial and federal governments are doing to address the issue of child and youth suicide in Canada. While much work has been done by the Advocates to better understand this issue, they have also called for government to take concrete action to address it.

CANADIAN COUNCIL OF CHILD AND YOUTH ADVOCATES (CCCYA) STATEMENT OF CONCERN
Statement on Children’s Rights in Canada
Children’s rights in Canada were under siege in 2018. Young people who are marginalized, vulnerable and involved with government systems, saw their rights curtailed and voices silenced. It is imperative that Canadians join us to demand their governments act to advance and uphold the rights of children and youth. To not take action is to fail them.
