Why we advocate

Since 1922, the Canadian Paediatric Society has advocated for the health, safety and well-being of children and youth through improved public policy. Today, decision-makers recognize the CPS as a leader in evidence-based information. The CPS is regularly called upon to provide expert advice on how legislation and programs can best meet the needs of children and youth. Volunteer leaders and senior staff at the CPS are involved in advocacy at the national and provincial/territorial levels and CPS members across the country are advocates and leaders in their own communities. Our public policy advocacy efforts build on decades of work persuading governments to take paediatric issues seriously.
