Community Action Program for Children (CAPC)

At the 1990 United Nations World Summit for Children, the leaders of 71 countries made a commitment to invest in the well-being of vulnerable children. The Government of Canada responded with the Child Development Initiative (CDI).  Community Action Program for Children (CAPC) is the largest programme of this initiative.

CAPC provides long term funding to community coalitions to deliver programs that address the health and development of children (0-6 years) who are living in conditions of risk. It recognizes that communities have the ability to identify and respond to the needs of children and places a strong emphasis on partnerships and community capacity building.

CAPC targets children living in low income families; children living in teenage-parent families; children experiencing developmental delays, social, emotional or behavioural problems; and abused and neglected children.

CAPC programs are currently running in Georgina, Markham and Vaughan.  For further information, please contact us.
