Early Years Data to Collective Impact Forum

October 23, 2014

An Early Years Data to Collective Impact forum hosted by the Regina Regional Intersectoral Committee was held at Campus Regina Public  (1069 14th Ave. E.) from 9:30am-3:30pm. 

The event provided the opportunity for a wide variety of stakeholders to learn about and discuss early years data to generate ideas that will inform development of an early years strategy for Regina to help improve early childhood outcomes. The forum built upon the collaborative efforts of early years partners over several years, with the goal of continuing to move the work forward to continue creating a positive collective impact for children’s development in Regina. An Early Years Report was released that utilizes the Regina Children’s Charter as a framework and an update on the development of the Early Years Family Centres in Regina was provided.
