The Early Alert helps us monitor the broader context in which charities interact with parliament, beyond the child-focused policy developments we focus on. It identifies trends in the federal environment in which we operate that help guide our work on children’s issues. Lisa Wolff, Director of Policy and Education, UNICEF Canada

Early Alerts are a valuable source of information on what our colleagues in the sector are doing. We love knowing who has been invited to speak to a committee, or who is holding an event on the Hill. The Alerts are always right on topic, highlighting issues that matter to us and our member Clubs. Rachel Gouin, Director of Research and Public Policy, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada
