Our Core Objectives

The ICPNC brings together leading practitioners in child protection to enhance Canadian organizations capacity to ensure results-oriented, innovative and effective child protection programming.


Our Core Objectives are:

  1. Strengthen evidence-informed Child Protection programming among Canadian International Development NGOs, with an emphasis on rights-based approaches, safe participation, and accountability to children.
  2. Engage Canadian and international stakeholders – including the Government of Canada, coalitions, the public, and other key stakeholders – to increase their awareness, prioritization, and action on Child Protection issues.
  3. Improve Child Safeguarding and Protection policies and procedures among Canadian International Development NGOs.
