During the spring and summer of 2001, the Canadian Coalition for the Rights of Children (CCRC), with funding from Human Resources Development Canada, began a project to spread awareness of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). This booklet is one outcome of that project. 'Child care and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child' specifically discusses the CRC and how it applies to child care and children in Canada.
This booklet is one of seven that were developed to provide an overview of the CRC for people who work with and on behalf of children in the following areas:
• child care
• health care
• resource and support programs
