Providing support and creating safe spaces for children and their families is vital to building an inclusive culture of resistance to the G8/G20. In light of this fact, childcare will be available for the June 25th Justice for Our Communities March.

From 2-8pm on Friday, parents will have the option of dropping their children off at Parliament Library (Parliament and Gerrard, upstairs) for an afternoon of radical story telling, games and crafts, while they take part in the community march. Snacks will also be provided.

For parents planning on dropping off their children, we ask that you prepare, in advance a list of a minimum of 2 emergency contact names and contact information. Upon dropping off your child/children you will be asked to fill out a basic information form (i.e. child’s name, food allergies, health concerns etc.), as well as provide us with emergency contacts. Aside from the obvious use (i.e. an emergency) these contacts will be called in the instance that a parent is unable to make it back to pick up their child/children (for example, if they are detained at the march).

The G20 Childcare Team has a strict policy of not turning children over to Child and Family Services. If for whatever reason you are unable to provide us with emergency contacts, there will be a space provided on the information form for parents to outline how they would like the Childcare Team to deal with a situation in which they were unable to collect their child/children.

If you have any questions, or would like to find out more information concerning childcare offered at other G20 related events, please don’t hesitate to contact us:
