After 14 years, the Canadian Child and Youth Health Coalition has decided to dissolve. CCYHC member organizations will continue to work together, forming temporary, project-based coalitions wherever opportunities arise. We look forward to collaborating and supporting one another as we continue to advocate for better child and youth health outcomes across Canada.

After March 6th, 2019, Coalition materials will be archived at The Sandbox Project.

Beginning in 2004, the Canadian Child & Youth Health Coalition (CCYHC) has advocated for better health and healthcare for Canada‚Äôs children and youth and for policies and practices that will help to achieve both. We have done so by harnessing the collective expertise and influence of our member organizations. 

Working together as a national collaborative, CCYHC focused on encouraging the development and evaluation of models of quality care, promoting excellence and innovation in the education and training of child and youth health professionals, stimulating and promoting the development of new knowledge, and promoting the uptake and implementation of evidence-based practice and policy.
