The CICH Profile evaluates and summarizes data on the health and well-being of Canadian children and youth through graphs, tables and commentaries covering a broad range of health indicators.
The Canadian Institute of Child Health (CICH) is a national non-profit organization, founded in 1977 to promote the health and well-being of all children and youth in Canada. CICH has published three hard copy editions of The Profile and is the lead coordinating organization of this on-line version.
“This joint report between the Representative for Children and Youth and the Provincial Health Officer examines the question, “How are our children doing right now?” The report finds that while there have been some improvements, vulnerable children and youth, especially Aboriginal children and those in government care, continue to lag behind their peers. In addition, it found that with changes to the way governments are collecting data, it’s getting harder to get a clear picture of the well-being of B.C. children and youth.”Read More »
