Canadian Council of Child and Youth Advocates (CCYA) National Paper of Youth Suicide, September 17, 2019

Suicide amongst our young people in Canada is preventable. We can no longer tolerate the inaction of federal, provincial or territorial governments. 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. The purpose of this report is to maintain a national spotlight on the issue of youth suicide from the Council’s collective work and the urgent need for governments to eradicate the barriers in achieving their obligations under the UNCRC.
