Hello CCRC subscribers,

We hope that the spring is treating you well.

As you may have seen, our last few newsletters have featured commentary on the right to education, and the effects of the pandemic. We will continue to highlight how the pandemic has exacerbated violations of children's rights in Canada.

We also continue to work to end violence against children in Canada. We have been highlighting the Public Health Agency of Canada's webinars, and have also hosted one of our own. See below for the recording of it. We will have another webinar at the end of June where we will explore some paths forward for Canada and how civil society can get involved.

We are always looking for ways we can support our members, so please drop us a line if you would like to be in touch.

Take care,

Kate Butler
CCRC Chair
