The Provincial Early Years Strategy (February 2013) & Update (March 2015)

In February 2013, the BC government released a provincial Early Years Strategy that sets out a one-government approach to the early years by focusing on three goals: accessibility, affordability and quality. This one-government approach helps ensure that the many ministries and community organizations that support the early years are acting in a coordinated, effective manner.


In February 2014, government established the Provincial Office for the Early Years, which is hosted by the Ministry of Children and Family Development. This office is the province’s lead for ensuring the many activities and initiatives related to the early years — which are carried out by community stakeholders, as well as a number of ministries across government, including the ministries of Health, Children and Family Development, and Education — are well-coordinated and accessible in communities across the province.

Child Poverty Report Card (2014)

First Call: BC Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition with the support of SPARC BC produces an annual report card with the latest statistics on child and family poverty in British Columbia. This is done in conjunction with the release of the national child poverty report card by Campaign 2000.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Canada’s promise to end child poverty. In this past quarter century a whole generation of British Columbian children have grown up, yet far too many of them have been hampered in reaching their full potential by growing up in poverty.

First Call has been tracking child and family poverty rates in BC for nearly two decades. Our first provincial report card containing data for 1994 showed that one in five BC children were poor. It is profoundly disappointing that eighteen years later the data still shows that one in five BC children are poor.

We know that such a widespread problem requires policy changes and social investments from our provincial and federal governments. It’s a question of priorities. The BC Child Poverty Report Card includes a list of recommendations that would make a real difference to the size and depth of BC’s child and family poverty problem.
