Who we are:
Twelve national organizations have come together under the umbrella of the Canadian Child & Youth Health Coalition (CCYHC) with a common vision to advance the cause of child and youth health and health care in Canada.

Our collective mandate is to aid in the advocacy of national child and youth health, healthcare and policy issues and decisions that will benefit from the collective expertise and influence of its members. By working together as a national collaborative, CCYHC has an unparalleled capacity to inform the members of the Coalition of individual activities of the member organizations and thus encourage the development and evaluation of models of quality care, promote excellence and innovation in the education and training of child and youth health professionals, stimulate and promote the development of new knowledge, and promote the uptake and implementation of evidence-based practice and policy that can lead to improvement in child and youth health outcomes.
