CanChild is a research and educational centre that provides evidence-based information to improve the lives of children and youth with disabilities and their families.
CanChild's foundation is built on the following five core functions:
- Take a leadership role in identifying emerging issues in research, practice, policy, and education.
- Conduct high-quality, innovative research that gives children and youth increased opportunities to thrive at home, at school, and in the community.
Effectively transfer the knowledge generated by our evidence-based research into practice at the clinical and health systems levels.
- Educate the families and health care providers and share research findings to those who need it the most.
- Mentor students, post-doctoral fellows, junior researchers, and experts to build capacity for future researchers around the world.
