and well-being of children and youth
The Canadian Paediatric Society’s 2017 – 2022 Strategic Framework represents our view of what we can do to help make Canada the best place in the world to grow up. It builds on our history, reflects our strengths, and uses past success to focus our efforts.
This framework focuses our energy and efforts by defining where we want to go, and how we can best get there. Charting a new course requires the engagement of child and youth health providers and partners. We will draw from the expertise, experience and insight of paediatricians, researchers, advocates and leaders as we define what “success” looks like, and determine how best to achieve it. We will be fueled by the passion and commitment of our large community, and we will be actively seeking to grow.
Ensuring that every child and youth thrives in an environment that supports optimal health and well-being is the most important work we do—as paediatricians, as parents, as Canadians. It’s also the most rewarding, though we are never quite “done”.
Like kids themselves, the potential for positive change is limitless. Each of us must focus on what unique contributions we can make, with a watchful eye on the political, economic and scientific changes that can either present opportunities or pose risks.
