Our Guiding Principles
Children First - Children must be the primary consideration in CAP-C
(Community Action Program for Children) programs.
Strengthening and Support Families - All sectors of Canadian society share
the responsibility for children by supporting parents as they raise their children.
Equity and Accessibility - Children, regardless of culture
and socio- economic status, are entitled to equal opportunities to develop to their full potential.
Partnerships and Coalitions - Holistic support for children
and their families can only be achieved through the combined effort of parents, families, communities, governments and service providers.
Community-Based - The community is viewed as the focus for
decision-making and action.
Flexibility - In order to respond to the diversity of
communities across Canada and the particular circumstances and changing needs of children and families, CAP-C programs must be flexible.
