The 2013 Cities Fit for Children Conference is now over. Find below the powerpoint presentations from workshops and keynotes at Cities Fit for Children.
Surrey was proud to host the Cities Fit for Children Conference. The Conference will bring together
- municipal, and
- regional leaders
involved in policy decisions and designing and building safe, healthy communities for children and families, building on the success of the 3 previous provincial forums.
This is a great opportunity to engage with municipalities, non-profits, recreation programmers, social and community planning, early childhood practitioners, youth workers, engineers, and policy makers.

The theme for this year’s conference will be the Rights of the Child, and will include workshops on

There will be a keynote panel each day, including Kerry Constabile, an international representative from UNICEF, Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts, and Dr. Trevor Hancock.
