As part of Early Childhood Week, which is taking place from November 18 to the 24, the Assembly of First Nations Quebec-Labrador (AFNQL) wishes to draw public attention to the results of a recent survey that was conducted among the population of Quebec about First Nations and Inuit children.

Fully 62% of Quebecers believe that not enough is being done to promote the proper development of children aged five and under. That’s the main finding of a survey conducted by Léger and made public by the Early Childhood Observatory.

Au Québec, on compte près de 540 000 tout-petits. Dans quelles conditions de vie grandissent ces enfants de 0 à 5 ans? Sommes-nous à la hauteur de ces tout-petits qui seront les grands de demain? La majorité d’entre eux se portent bien et vivent dans un environnement propice à leur développement. Néanmoins, plusieurs vivent encore des situations difficiles.

Montreal, November 15, 2018 – The 540,000 children in the 0-to-5 age group in Quebec may make up a mere 6% of our population, but they represent 100% of our future. By this virtue alone, they deserve special care and attention from every sector of our society. The third edition of Early Childhood Week, which will take place from November 18 to 24, promises to bring even more people together, as numerous stakeholders from around the province pledge to make early childhood development a true social priority.

The Early Childhood Week, scheduled to take place from November 19 to 25, will give 20 partners and ten ambassadors from various walks of life the opportunity to shine a spotlight on children aged 0 to 5 and thereby make them a true social priority.

Early Childhood Week is an opportunity to raise awareness, promote dialogue and engage society about early childhood matters.
