GET INVOLVED IN ORGANIZING THE 2013 YOUTH ACTION GATHERING!
CCR Youth Network National Campaigns and Projects:
Speak Up! is a youth-led small grants fund pilot project. From March 2011 to December 2011, the CCR provided funding (a total of $16500) and support to groups of newcomer youth across Canada to develop creative public education and advocacy resources. We hope that you will use these resources in your communities to promote the well-being of newcomer youth, or be inspired to start similar projects in your cities!
A public education campaign to stop harmful stereotypes, ignorance, and racism affecting newcomer youth across Canada.
Losing your permanent resident card or having the wrong information on it can keep you from accessing the services that you need. Are you facing this problem or helping people deal with it? Answer our survey! Looking for a way to get involved? Volunteer to listen to people's stories!
Canada has signed the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, but the rights of children who are not Canadian citizens are not always respected in Canada. Detention, human trafficking, statelessness, family separation, and deportation are some of the areas where Canada seriously fails to respect and take care of non-citizen children and youth. The UN will soon examine if Canada is respecting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. This is a great opportunity for a national campaign!
