Save the Children Canada
For over 100 years, we’ve advanced children’s rights in Canada and around the world. We do whatever it takes every day and in times of crisis — to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. We strive to ensure children’s unique needs are met and their voices are heard— transforming their lives and the future we share. Because we believe every girl and boy has the right to survive and thrive.

Protect A Generation
You can help support an entire generation of children who have had their lives disrupted by the global pandemic. Millions of girls and boys may never return to the classroom, especially those living in poverty or war zones, without your support.
WHAT WE DO FOR CHILDREN

Too many children around the world live in danger. We are there for vulnerable children, keeping them safe from harm whether they are living on the streets, in refugee camps, or in institutions. We also work to change national and international policies on child protection.Read More
Gender equality is a basic right for all people, including children. We are committed to addressing gender-based discrimination and promoting gender equality through our programs so children in all regions of the world can attain their equal right to survival, protection, development and participation.Read More
We recognize that not all children’s rights are equally realized in Canada, and those most deprived of their rights are First Nations, Metis, and Inuit children. That’s why we are focusing our programs in Canada on reconciliation through a child-centred approach.Read More
