Youth represent the future of our society. We must give them the best conditions possible to grow, so that they may flourish in life. This is why our goal is to propel the cause of the family, by concentrating on numerous phenomena such as divorce, family mediation, poverty, school dropouts, bullying, street gangs, delinquency, health and the environment. We offer consultation services, assistance and support to individuals in distress experiencing family issues. We also organize activities for underprivileged children all year long.
Annual Easter Parties!
This year, our objective is to sponsor 700 underprivileged children for our Easter Parties which will take place in Montreal and in Quebec City on April 5 and 14 respectively. The children will be entertained by professional animators and mascots who will present a festive Easter show filled with laughter, singing and dancing. A hot lunch and desserts will be provided to all of the children. Moreover, they will participate in the traditional Easter Egg Hunt and finally, will receive a variety of gifts. Help us carry on this memorable tradition!
Youth Leadership and Climate Action
From July 7-9th 2021, Children Now held its 10th International Symposium: Youth Leadership and Climate Action. A Charter of Global Ecological Responsibilities has been launched following the Symposium. The aim of the Charter of Global Ecological Responsibilities is to safeguard the rights of all present and future generations to a healthy and ecologically balanced global environment. This is made possible by supporting and promoting the protection, enhancement and prudent care of the environment everywhere on Earth as well as to empower the youth as future environmental leaders to think holistically and envision truly creative solutions to ecological problems.

Learning Space for Parents and Youth
Alongside professionals in the field, we have developed tools for every family member. This space provides videos, case studies, and answers to FAQs in subjects related to divorce, family mediation, health, bullying, street gangs, and more. We touch upon the realities of challenges that families may face so that harmony may be found.
Children Now also offers a free and confidential help line. We offer an attentive ear and legal information. If needed, we will present you with available options and refer you to the appropriate resources. The organisation possesses a databank which includes more than 2 000 community resources including self-help groups and legal services.
