Almost 100 coalitions currently exist in Alberta to raise awareness of the importance of the early years within their unique community context.

The Plan

Celebrating Collective Impact

The funding for ECCA ended on March 31, 2020. Please read this Report Back to Community to learn more about the incredible work ECCA accomplished between 2015-2020. Congratulations to each and every individual who contributed to increasing the awareness of early childhood in communities across Alberta. Watch the celebration video here.

The Outcomes

Listen to the following podcast to gain insight into the work of ECCA.

Multisectoral collaboration, partnership, and community engagement are key components of coalition work. Community members, organizations, and businesses collaborate on early childhood resources and activities that highlight brain development, developmental domains, and communities' role in the life of all children.

So much amazing work is being done in Alberta for our youngest citizens.

See ECCA website for more details.
