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.

How Was The Charter Created?

The Tri-Cities Childrens' Charter of Rights was officially launched on April 18, 2018 but not before significant planning, visioning and most importantly input from children and the community. Find out more about how the children's voices were heard.
