National Child Day has been celebrated across Canada since 1993 on 20 November to commemorate the United Nations' adoption of two documents centered on children's rights: the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child on November 20, 1959, and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child on November 20, 1989.

On Saturday, November 16, 2019 PSP will be offering a FREE Children’s Art Workshop  at each Base and Wing across Canada in honour of National Child Day to highlight  the impact recreation has on children of military families.  Children will work together to create a larger work of art that will be displayed as of November 20, 2019.  Our goal is to create a piece of art that reflects healthy child development through the symbol of a tree of hands.

When children participate in recreational play, they develop physically, mentally and emotionally. Through creative play, they develop a strong foundation that will help prepare them for future life experiences. Through participation in organized art activities children are developing core characteristics that will help them overcome challenges associated with the military lifestyle.
