Child Friendly Communities Project 2010-2012

As part of Community Action Toward Children's Health Strategic Plan, one of CATCH's goals is to support Central Okanagan communities to become more child friendly.  We are looking at what a child friendly community looks and feels like.   Themes include neighbourhoods, transportation, housing, workplaces and public spaces. If you would like to join in on the discussion, please click on the survey below.  This survey is only five questions.
