Thinking big for our children

Estrie charter Think BIG for our children

Let’s give all our children the same opportunity to thrive

Children in Estrie do not all grow up under the same conditions, which can lead to inequalities in their development. The aim of the Estrie Charter is to mobilize all the stakeholders in domains that affect children in the region, to support our young people and to make Estrie a place where everyone has the chance to achieve their full potential.
