September 13th - 20th communities across Canada will Talk it Up for Child Care.

We want to keep child care on the federal election agenda. Get involved and help push for a national plan for quality affordable child care in this federal election.

The Talk it Up Week of Action will centre around the I Vote Child Care Pledge  and features a number of Canada-wide events such as, Grandparent's Day on September 13th, Art Attack day on September 16th to coincide with a #VoteChildCare2015 Twitter Storm on the same day. 

Local child care supporters across the country are busy organizing exciting events during the week of action such as: Vote Child Care canvassing & training sessions, setting up Vote Child Care tables at local farmer's markets, pop-up voting stations and all candidates' debates.

Event date: 
13 Nov 2014 - 9:00am to 4:00pm

The one-day research event will focus on how knowledge can improve child care policy. University, community and government researchers will present papers and posters exploring the policy-knowledge connection. "Policy" is used in the broadest sense, and topics will include historical as well as contemporary, and international as well as Canadian perspectives. We warmly invite established as well as emerging scholars to submit a proposal - see the Call for Papers below. The final program for the research day will be available in late July. The registration fee to attend the research conference is $75, and can be paid either separately or at the time of registering for the national conference.

childhood disability (without) poverty: a national discussion

Event date: 
12 May 2023 - 9:00am to 13 May 2023 - 1:00pm

This family-led event will explore the intersection of familial poverty, childhood disability, and health outcomes. It will create an opportunity for families, health care professionals, and policy researchers to come together and share both their knowledge and lived experiences on equal footing to identify where we can partner to effect systemic change. Childhood disability is known to have a huge financial impact on families and children.

There is simply not enough data or awareness about the intersection of childhood disability with familial and personal lifelong financial challenges.

We want to change that.

Disability Without Poverty is a movement, led by people with disabilities supported by our families, friends, service providers, allies and organizations. Right now, our priority is to build consensus toward a federal Canada Disability Benefit that would ensure income support above the poverty line for people who live with disabilities.
