Developmental science has shown the lifelong importance of early years
on human learning, behaviour, and physical and mental health.
Interventions that support developmental health from birth to age five
contribute to establishing the foundations for a healthy life and a
prosperous society.

This short document discusses how
developmental health knowledge can act as a catalyst for family policies
that support developmental health for all children in Canada and for
the health of Canadian society more generally.

Full report coming soon.
