Tri-Cities Children's Charter
The Communities of Anmore, Belcarra, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody agree that the Early and Middle Childhood Years (birth to 12 years) are critical in the healthy development and future well-being of children in our communities. Our partners have been instrumental in helping to create and adopt the Tri-Cities Children's Charter of Rights. Visit the Rights in Action page to see how our community is addressing these rights and how you can adopt the rights within your family, school, business and our community.

Creating a community commitment to upholding children’s rights as they have been expressed and reflected upon by children themselves requires the collaborative effort of numerous amazing partners. Here's our growing list of partners:
