Raising Canada: A report on children in Canada, their health and wellbeing, 2020
The Canadian population continues to grow in all age groups, including children, but what do we know about the health and wellbeing of our children? What are the social determinants of their health? How many live in low-income households? How many are experiencing food insecurity? How many have experienced abuse, and how many are developmentally vulnerable? The purpose of this report, designed and financed by the O'Brien Institute for Public Health and developed for Children First Canada, is to paint a high-level picture of the health status of children across Canada, both mental and physical, using readily available and reputable sources of data.
